The film program prepares students for creative roles in the film and television industry. Our intensive horizontally and vertically integrated program of screenwriting, production and theory/criticism requires 81 credits. Students may also choose a Screenwriting or Film Studies minor. Completion of the major in Film requires students to present a screenplay and either a senior film or a senior thesis to a faculty committee during the Spring quarter.


Students must complete all lower-division required GECR courses before entering the film program. Admission to the program is restricted to fall quarter. Once a student has completed all their GECRs, they should apply for a major status prior to the fall quarter they intend to begin the program. To apply for a major status, students can contact the Department Secretary at to set up an appointment with the Department Chair.

Failure to complete courses as they are offered will result in a significant delay in progress toward graduation. FILM 214, Film and the Humanities, may be completed prior to any degree in Film, but must be successfully completed no later than the first quarter in the program. 



High-Definition and one and three chip digital cameras, microphones, lighting and production support tools are available to students enrolled in production courses.


Ten non-linear editing stations, including stations for surround sound and DVD production, are available for students enrolled in production courses.

TV Studio

A fully-equipped studio is available to students enrolled in a production course.

Screening Room

A state-of-the-art screening room, seating 50, is available for course and student project showings. A second state-of-the-art screening room, seating 30, is also available.
