Board of Trustees approves BFA in cinematic arts
The Board of Trustees approved a new Bachelor of Fine Arts in cinematic arts, to be offered in The Media School.
The new, 120-credit-hour degree will be taught by existing faculty and will require students to complete media core courses, as well as courses in theory, industry and production, and a final thesis. Students who complete the program will be prepared for careers in the film industry as well as graduate programs in film production or studies.
The program will incorporate partnerships with the IU Cinema, the Moving Image Archive and the Black Film Center/Archive.
The degree still awaits final approval by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.
