What will I learn?

Creators of film, television and video productions build the lens through which the world observes and understands itself. The film, television and video production degree at Webster University prepares students to be visual storytellers, idea shapers, entertainers, artists and communicators. Film/video is an art, a craft, a business, a passion and a way of life; it is inherently technical, theoretical and aesthetic.

Our program prepares students in each of these areas, ensuring that they are ready to enter any facet of the industry upon graduation. Whether students want to be a director, cinematographer, editor, visual effects or motion graphics artist, producer, gaffer, grip or any of the many other jobs available, this degree provides the theoretical and practical knowledge needed to succeed by placing students in real-world production environments at every level, starting from the moment they arrive, using industry-standard equipment and software. Students will learn fiction, nonfiction and experimental approaches; they will then be given the opportunity to specialize as their own path dictates.
