Students in the program are taught about cinematography, camera techniques, and postproduction. In our program, students take classes in Cinema History, Photography/Visual Storytelling, Audio Production, Digital Editing, and 2D Animation/motion Graphics. You can learn the ins and outs of pre- and post-production and non-linear editing, plus lighting and audio for video and field production.

Graduates of the program are prepared to seek entry-level jobs like cinematographer, video editor, scriptwriter, producer, and camera operator.
