The BFA in Film and Video Production Curriculum

The BFA degree in film/video requires a minimum of 54 credits, which includes the three pre-requisite courses MCA 10100 (Intro to Media Studies), 10500 (Intro to Media Production) and 12100 (Intro to Film Studies).
The program starts each fall semester and is completed in a 4-semester, 2-year cycle. Every semester students have a production course, a theory or history class, and a craft course (i.e., editing, camera, sound, etc.).
Students must choose either the fiction or the documentary track ccand agree to complete the course of study for that track.

Grade Point Average

Students are required to maintain a 3.0 GPA for courses within the major to remain matriculated in the program. Transcripts are reviewed at the end of every semester by the BFA to determine students’ GPA and status in the program. Two consecutive semesters below a 3.0 GPA for BFA coursework may prevent a student from continuing in the program.

Thesis Projects

A 10-12-minute thesis film project is required of all students for graduation.
