Temple University (TU Department of Film and Media Arts)

Welcome to Temple University’s Department of Film and Media Arts. Our vibrant program is part of a healthy media making community located in the country’s fourth largest media market. FMA’s theory / practice curriculum emphasizes creative expression in conjunction with a broadly based education. Our program offers a four year undergraduate degree and a three year MFA degree to some 700 undergraduates and 40 graduate students. Our faculty are all active media makers and scholars, while a great many of our students and alumni are also active in the field.

Film & Media Arts undergraduate students take between 42 and 54 credits in their major. Our students complete four FMA foundation courses in their freshman and sophomore years, prior to choosing an area of emphasis for their studies. They can choose between the production thesis, media culture thesis and general sequence. Within these sequences, it is possible to take a series of courses in script writing, post production, producing, and production research.

Many accomplished and successful media makers have gone through our program. They include Larry McConkey, (steadicam operator on Kill Bill, Vanilla Sky, Three Kings, and many other major studio films), Keith Fulton and Lou Pepe (Lost in La Mancha), Ross Katz (Lost in Translation), and Derek Guiley (writer on Chasing Liberty).

Our students also benefit from internships or employment on the growing number of films and television series shot in the region. Each summer some 35 of our students spend two months participating in our Los Angeles Internship program.
