MFA in Cinema and Media Production Boston University




Course info


The MFA in Cinema & Media Production is designed as a challenging advanced degree for students already experienced and committed to a career in film, television, and new media production. The program is ideal for those with an undergraduate degree in narrative fiction film and television production or those with significant production experience.

It is composed of students seeking to advance their skills, with the aim of providing an opportunity to create an exceptional, groundbreaking film of professional quality that will launch their professional careers.

Each participant will specialize in his/her chosen discipline: directing, producing, or cinematography. Over the course of the 12-month program, students will be immersed in a collaborative environment within which they will produce a capstone production. The program is run on a mentorship model, with each student guided through the program by an advisor.

Upon admission, directors will collaborate with faculty on the conception and development of thesis project concepts. During the first semester, directors will form thesis production teams with student producers, cinematographers. Coursework will revolve around the development, pre-production, production, editing, and completion of this project. Candidates will be required to present their finished short film(s) by September of the year following their admission and screen the film(s) by December of the same year.
