The film and animation MFA is a three-year program designed to educate complete filmmakers. Rather than narrow vocational training, you will learn the artistic, narrative, technical, historical, and business aspects of whatever form you choose during your first two years, and then create a thesis project in your third year that can be completed on or off campus.

As an animation student, you will concentrate in either 2D, 3D, or stop motion but be able to explore the other types of animation.

As a film student, you will concentrate in production or screenwriting. While the curricula are similar, the production thesis is directing a narrative, documentary, or experimental live action short whereas the screenwriting thesis is writing a feature film or television series.

Our MFA degree provides the advanced training that can launch professional careers. It is also a "terminal degree," qualifying the graduate to teach filmmaking in other higher education programs of merit.
