LMU’s School of Film and Television (SFTV) in Los Angeles is consistently ranked among the top 10 film schools in the country. Through coursework, projects, and an emphasis on close mentorship and collaboration, we create storytellers and industry leaders who use the power of media and entertainment to enlighten and inform audiences, to deepen our connections to one another, and to broaden our understanding of the world.
Small class sizes and a collaborative, hands-on approach provide a personalized experience for every student. Our curriculum pairs a broad liberal arts education with specialized coursework in each major beginning in the freshman year. This combination offers a solid foundation of knowledge for students to develop their artistry, voice, and vision and discover their unique perspective on the world. With guidance from seasoned faculty, they're trained in both the creative and practical aspects of telling stories for the screen so they're prepared to put their creativity to work.
SFTV’s talented students own the rights to their projects, and they graduate with the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to thrive in a constantly changing industry.
