Montana State University (MSU Department of Media & Theatre Arts)




The Department of Media and Theatre Arts (MTA) offers two distinct options leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree either in Motion Picture/Video/Theatre or in Photography, and a Master of Fine Arts in Science & Natural History Film.

Both the Motion Picture/Video/Theatre degree program and the Photography degree program are in heavy demand, therefore GPA gates are in place, allowing only a certain number of students to continue, in order to preserve the integrity of student education.

In Motion/Picture/Video/ Theatre Program in the Dept. of Media & Theatre Arts, the curriculum begins with first-year foundation courses emphasizing an understanding and analysis of motion pictures, and theatre and introduces students to the actual production process.

In the third year, students who qualify by attaining a minimum average GPA in their MTA requirements in the first two years build upon these basics in production process workshops that are required of all students in fiction, non-fiction, and stage. Additional course work in advanced film studies as well as professional practices courses and internship options compliment the upper division requirements.

The graduate program in Science and Natural History Filmmaking at Montana State University is the first program of its type in the world and remains the largest and the most well-known.

Students in the program have had their work broadcast in many major venues such as The Discovery Channel, National Geographic, The Science Channel, CNN, Sixty Minutes II, Larry King, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News. They have produced films for the National Park Service, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Agriculture, NOAA, NASA, and such non-profit organizations including the Wildlife Conservation Society, the Sierra Club, the Audubon Society, and the Nature Conservancy. Students’ work have appeared in major museums, schools, and cultural venues too numerous to count. Our students literally travel the world with explorers and scientists to make films from the Pribilof Islands to Easter Island, the Galapagos, Australia, Japan, Mongolia, Africa, Chile, and under the sea as well.

Students in the program continue to win an impressive array of major awards for their work, including a student Emmy, Tellies, the best of show in major film festivals.
