Mikael Kreuzriegler

Our two programs—a BA and an MFA in Film and Television Production—help students gain an understanding of the entire filmmaking process, starting with ideation and story development, through production, post-production, and all the way through distribution and marketing.

We seek students who are intensely curious and who want to make a difference in the world. We offer dedicated faculty mentors; small class sizes; access to high-end labs and equipment; a highly collaborative environment, a semester-long study abroad program in Bonn, Germany; regular industry guest speakers; and access to top-level internships in the media and entertainment industry.

Thank you for exploring this program. I encourage prospective students to contact us for more information.
