The Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in film and media arts is a professional degree program with a focus on hands-on production of documentary, narrative and experimental films using state-of-the-art motion picture cameras and post-production facilities. The robust curriculum includes a broad array of courses in production and post-production, as well as cinema studies, art history, screenwriting and more, designed to prepare students for roles as directors, producers, editors, special effects artists, sound designers, screenwriters and/or independent filmmakers. Elective offerings allow students the flexibility to explore coursework in their area of interests. Students create a short format thesis film as a capstone experience. A digital copy of the approved project must be submitted to the UT library's institutional repository. Find more details about the BFA in film and media arts portfolio requiement on our website.
