Master the technology

The program prepares students to work with digital as well as conventional photographic, video and motion picture applications. Courses include photography, editing, cinematography, film theory, film production, lighting, script writing and an internship.

Create your film

Beginning the first semester, digital cinema students work with upperclassmen to create short films in various key roles informed by their progressive studies. This culminates in the production of a senior cinema project that becomes the centerpiece of a professional portfolio.
