BA and MFA difference? (1 Viewer)

I was just wondering what are the differences between film undergrad and grad studies, more towards USC. I already have an undergrad degree from the UK in a different subject and I'm trying to decide on wether to get another Bachelor degree or a Masters. Both of the courses are very similar on what they teach, at least it is on their website. The only differences I can see is the 4 years compared to 3.

One major question I have is do schools help undergrads find work and internships like they do grad students during and after studies?

Thanks

Considered by many to be the best film school in the world, it’s no wonder why the USC School of Cinematic Arts (SCA) is so sought after by prospective undergraduate and graduate students alike. However, the film school’s prestige can often make the application process particularly stressful and...

With the exception of Stark (which isn't offered for undergrad) they say instruction is practically identical at USC for BA and MFA.

decide on wether to get another Bachelor degree or a Masters
I'd go for a masters - you'll be with people of all ages 21+ and not just people straight out of high school.
