The Bachelor of Arts in Film Program prepares you for creative roles in the filmic arts. The 79-credit program provides an intensive experience in production and screenwriting as well as film history, theory, and criticism. Before you graduate, you’ll write a classically structured, feature-length screenplay and complete an advanced production project or a theory/criticism project. A faculty-student panel reviews both the screenplay and the project as a part of the Senior Capstone experience during Spring quarter.
How to Apply
Admission to the program is restricted to fall quarter. The Film Program requires a very specific sequence of courses, most of which are offered only once a year. Failure to complete courses as they are offered will result in a significant delay in progress toward graduation. You should consult with the department chair about the program and its requirements and declare your major status as early as possible: no later than the fall quarter that you begin your major in FILM. You should complete all, or nearly all, of your BACR courses before beginning the Film Program.

Transfer Requirements for Film
You must begin the program in the fall quarter. You should apply for major status prior to the fall quarter that you intend to begin your major in FILM and consult with the department chair on transferability of courses. Transfer students, including students with AA degrees, must complete FILM 214 no later than their first fall quarter in the program.
