Are you interested in pursuing a career in the digital film industry? Grand Canyon University's College of Fine Arts has a rich, 60-year history of producing talented musicians and actors. In keeping up with the demands of technology, GCU also offers two specializations for our Bachelor of Arts in Digital Film Degree; one in screenwriting and the other in production.
The Bachelor of Arts in Digital Film Degree develops leaders in the fields of narrative film and video production. The program is built on developing a strong foundation in narrative storytelling, creativity, technical skills, and the hands-on experience necessary to design and deliver poignant messages.
The Production emphasis is for students interested in the technical and creative side of making a film, whereas the Screenwriting emphasis involves writing and molding stories into films. The film production and film screenwriting students start with the same core courses, but each emphasis involves four extra courses (16 credits) tailored toward the desired specialization.
Grand Canyon University's digital film degree programs offer the advantage of a low student-to-teacher ratio (which averages 13:1). Another advantage is that students get the opportunity to immediately start creating productions, instead of waiting two or three years into the program.
