SMU Film & Media Arts
- SMU Film & Media Arts
The Division of Film & Media Arts is an undergraduate-only program based in the Meadows School of the Arts with nine full-time faculty, two full-time staff, and 80 majors. It offers two degrees: a 33-credit generalist B.A., and a 51-credit B.F.A. centering on media production or screenwriting. The curriculum is balanced between courses in media production (including screenwriting) and media studies. Our approach to film and media arts emphasizes the importance of understanding key critical, industrial, and aesthetic contexts, as well as the creative and technical skills necessary for production. All majors must take required courses in both areas.
