The Film Certificate is a 45-credit program for those who already hold a bachelor’s degree or have substantial professional experience in the media arts.  Certificate students are required to take a film foundation, and then may choose electives in the areas of:

  • film-school-2Producing
  • Directing
  • Cinematography
  • Editing
  • Screenwriting

Those applicants lacking an undergraduate degree must have approval from the Chair of the Film School to be admitted into the Certificate Program.

Application to the Certificate Program is the same process as the application for undergraduate application to the Film School.
