A Film Degree Like No Other
When you choose the Film, Media & Communication degree programs at Mount Saint Mary’s University, you’re stepping into a world no other institution can match.
While many schools have fine film studies programs, MSMU’s film, media and communication degree programs are different. Moving beyond the classroom, MSMU brings you into the world of experiential education, conducting classes in the heart of the entertainment industry: Sunset Gower Studios, Hollywood’s largest independent studio, a legendary site where thousands of hit films and television shows have come to life.
You’ll have 24-hour access to our labs which feature only the latest in film technology, including Avid Media Composer, ProTools, DaVinci Resolve, Adobe Creative Cloud and more. You’ll use the most cutting edge equipment available, including cameras from Canon, RED and ARRI. And best of all, you’ll get hands-on experience as early as your first semester.
Small class sizes means a better quality of education, more student-instructor interaction, and more access to equipment and resources than other, larger programs. Plus, our instructors are all full-time industry professionals, so you’re learning not only from top-quality educators, but today’s leading film and media professionals.
Students have access to the beautiful Chalon campus and historic Doheny campus for their film and still shoots - locations that have been utilized in countless major film and television programs. Moreover, students have the opportunity to observe or shadow on the professional productions that film at the Mount.
Many of our classes are offered on evenings and weekends, allowing students the flexibility to work, intern, or focus on their creative projects.
The Mount’s goal is to help students discover their voice and passion, so that they may make a difference in the world.
