The College of Motion Picture Arts offers a Master of Fine Arts program that lands you right into high caliber live-action movie production. Working with professional-grade cameras, equipment, and facilities from the start, you are immersed in an intensely collaborative setting where you are challenged to master the art, craft and business of storytelling.
Regardless of your previous experience, you graduate prepared for success in the industry and you become a part of our close-knit community of filmmakers who are proud to call the College their alma mater.
With a six-to-one student to faculty ratio, you work intimately with respected resident and visiting filmmakers to learn all aspects of production from concept to distribution. Dedicated specialists work one-on-one with you to shape your artistic decisions and craft your most compelling story.
Over the course of six semesters, you master the process of production through a hands-on, project-centered curriculum. Using state-of-the-art facilities, equipment, and software, you develop a comprehensive understanding of every aspect of production by completing a series of projects that lead to your festival-quality thesis.
Support from the college continues after you graduate. The school promotes thesis projects in festivals long after you leave campus, and our director of alumni selects industry mentors to help guide you in your career. You join our network of alumni, who have earned a reputation in the industry as innovative, successful filmmakers, and have a 97% industry placement rate within one year of graduation. They can be found in every facet of the entertainment business, and they return often to share their experience in the industry.
