A student’s first year is devoted primarily to acquiring a practical, historical, and critical background. The focus is on learning the fundamentals. Second year courses are devoted mainly to deepening and broadening the student’s creative and critical awareness in classes such as, film grammar, scriptwriting, video production, and still image; thus preparing students to choose their tracks by the time they reach their third year.
The last two years of education are designed for specialization. Students may choose out of several tracks: The project track where they can make a film or write a screenplay, the thesis track if they want to pursue academic interests or as another option, students can design their own program by focusing on very specific interests, such as art direction, cinematography or production, taking the course work track. The third year has only one CORE course and the fourth year none, so that students are free to take departmental electives or courses from other departments such as TV Journalism, Media and Communication Systems, Advertising or Music
