BFA Mission

Sample 4 Year Plan BFA

Major Tracking Sheet

The BFA is a competitive degree program requiring an appliction and selection procedure. All students begin their Film Studies career declaring the Bachelor of Arts in Film as their major. Students wishing to declare a BFA in Film Studies--the Production track--as their major must first satisfy specific prerequisites. The mission of the BFA is to prepare artists who will be competitive as independent filmmakers. To that end, a central aim of our curriculum is to help prepare students for advanced graduate degrees beyond the BFA degree.

In addition to acquiring the skills to make creative films and video works, students completing the BFA degree will also acquire the ability to analyze and interpret films critically and to communicate such interpretations competently in essay form.

Students following the BFA track are strongly discouraged from taking three or more production focused classes per semester.
