Bachelor of Arts Degree Overview
The Bachelor of Arts course work blends theory and practice. We offer a comprehensive array of classroom opportunities, including courses in film/video and production. There are two emphases to choose from. Production, with a focus on film and video production, will prepare you for a career in the film industry with the addition of study in quantitative reasoning. Culture and Studies will allow you the opportunity to not only work in film production and study quantitative reasoning but also explore the impact of film in various cultures and societies as well as the prospect of what the future holds for the development of new forms of media.
Film/Media projects originate in our media production courses. Many of these student works have won honors at regional, national, and international competitions. The Fiske Guide to Colleges has listed KU as one of the "Major Universities Strong in Film/Television" placing us with other film schools such as the University of Southern California and New York University.
The Film & Media Studies Program is housed in Summerfield Hall, right in the heart of the KU campus. This newly renovated facility provides students access to premium film production spaces and also offers film tools that allow students to learn and develop their art and craft.
