The goal of the Cinema Art and Science program is to engage students in the collaborative process of filmmaking, allowing them to explore a broad area of study or to focus on a specific area of interest through a variety of classes. The BA curriculum is also designed for students who intend to pursue further education, such as graduate school.


Cinema Art and Science majors complete 45 credits in the major which includes 9 credits of required core classes. Students can study a single discipline in Cinema Art and Science or explore the major through a variety of classes with the guidance of their faculty advisor. The core curriculum will include two foundations courses taken as freshmen and a World Cinema requirement taken during the sophomore year. The foundations courses are offered as learning communities.


As the CORE is being completed, students may take beginning and intermediate classes in CAS. These courses will prepare students for advanced study, which will provide the opportunity to assemble a body of work.  Students can select courses from a wide variety of specialties including Animation, Cinematography, Cinema Studies, Cinema Visual Effects, Directing, Documentary, Post-production, Producing, Production Design, Screenwriting, and Sound for Cinema.
