Creative Endeavors in Film with Real-World Applications.

The only program of its kind in Central Florida, our Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in film focuses on the integration of theoretical, historical, and cultural application of film.

Through courses in production, art, and screenwriting, you'll conceptualize effective strategies for creating moving media. Classes in cinema history will challenge you to think critically about images and their meaning. Courses like Film Aesthetics and Storytelling for the Screen will provide insights into disseminating messages across a diverse array of distribution channels.

A portfolio submission is required for admission into the Film Program.
