Film Editing and Postproduction, B.A.

  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months


Whether working in Avid, Premier, Final Cut or any other non-linear editing system, the concepts, concerns, and artistic approaches to achieving the final edit remains the same. The Core Major Requirements are the same as the standard Film Major, thus students may elect this concentration as late as their junior year. The Editing Concentration requirements, which are a mix of cross discipline courses, educate students in the craft and practice of post-production, enabling them to work as editors on senior student film projects to build a reel and help start them on a future career working professionally in the post-production industry.
