From classroom to clapboard, the film and media arts curriculum will immerse you in both the technical and creative aspects of the growing field of film and media production. This well-regarded program provides significant opportunities for internships at all levels of media production, and prepares you for a career in production, screenwriting, editing or cinematography. 

The film and media arts major, which is currently fully accredited by NASAD (National Association of Schools of Art and Design), is one of the few programs within the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) where you will master both film and high definition video production.

You will further hone your professional skills and gain real-world experience through a required internship, which many students secure at a major film studio (Sony, Warner Brothers, Universal or Paramount) through Temple’s Los Angeles Film Studies Center. Student also have access to locally based internships.
