It takes a team of creative specialists to craft a great film. Whether your interest is in the visual, the writing, or the sound, you'll get the skills you need here.

Film at Mason is the first interdisciplinary film program in Virginia, and one of the few film schools to offer an undergraduate concentration in producing. Film majors take courses that give them the broad base of knowledge they need to craft works of depth, maturity, and sophistication.

We offer five concentrations:

  • Directing
  • Producing
  • Production (Cinematography)
  • Post-Production (Editing and Sound)
  • Screenwriting
