Filmmaking MFA


The Graduate MFA degree in Filmmaking is integrated into the Art/Art History MFA program in much the same way as the other arts practices of painting and drawing, ceramics, sculpture, media arts and printmaking. The interdisciplinary nature of our MFA program allows graduate students to work in various areas, in addition to their area of specialization. The aim of the MFA Filmmaking program is to aid in the advancement and understanding of moving image arts.
