Digital Cinema BA/BS
From pitch to popcorn, our students learn every stage of the visual storytelling process to bring their filmmaking dreams to life on screens of every size.
The Digital Cinema program is designed to meet every learner at their incoming level of experience. Students with no media production experience will jump-in with our Production Tools series of courses to get them up-to-speed with camera, audio recording, and editing software skills, while students entering with more experience in these areas can earn credit for prior learning and immediately move into more advanced production coursework. Any student with curiosity and tenacity has what it takes to succeed in Digital Cinema.
Every Digital Cinema student takes courses in storytelling, film history and analysis, foundational production skills, audio recording, lighting, cinematography, editing, media entrepreneurship or management, and deep professional immersion. Elective pathways include screenwriting, directing for the screen, documentary production, and virtual reality.
In their senior year, each Digital Cinema student works in a substantial role on a year-long Capstone project, giving them the opportunity to specialize and develop deeper mastery in their area of greatest interest. Capstone roles might include director, producer, screenwriter, cinematographer, production designer, or editor, and eligible Capstone projects might include a scripted short film, a short documentary, a television pilot, a promotional campaign, a music video, a web series, a VR experience, feature script, or other forms of media.
