Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Film, Television and Digital Media

What will I learn?

The objective of this programme is to enrich media workers and/or university graduates to systematically acquire extensive experiences in film, TV and digital media and prepare them for playing leading roles within the media industry of the Greater China Region. More specifically the programme aims to:

  • Offer advanced training in the professional, conceptual and aesthetic aspects of film, TV and digital media production;
  • Provide opportunities for students to independently create high quality works of particular media forms;
  • Train and educate graduate students to international levels of accomplishment; and
  • Create a platform for intellectual exchange between students and professionals.

Programme Structure

Units Requirement 66 units

  • Required Courses 33 units
  • Elective Courses 33 units

The programme also enables students to gain specific insights into one form of media of their choosing and a broader understanding of others. The curriculum ensures that each student receives relatively broad training in film, television and digital media in the first year. The first two semesters are designed to build a foundation for postgraduate media training. Students are required not only to be familiar with the practical operations of film, television and digital media, but also to understand related developments in theory and criticism. In the second year, students have a wide range of elective courses, enabling well-balanced professional training (script writing, film/TV production and digital media production) and artistic nurturing. The third year is dedicated to courses in support of the thesis project.

Each student will be able to choose one of the following media forms as his/her thesis project:
i. Script Writing;
ii. Film/TV Production;
iii. Digital Media Production.
