Answering the need of one of the state’s largest industries, the MFA Film program educates future directors, producers and cinematographers in a two-year program starting in Athens and finishing at the Georgia Film Academy.
Application requirements can be viewed here: mfafilm.uga.edu.
UGA’s MFA Film program is offered to students at a tuition rate comparable to that of other graduate programs at the university, making it one of the most financially accessible programs of its caliber in the country.
Students are expected to range from recent graduates to those who have worked in the industry for a few years and are looking for a new challenge.
The MFA Film program will be a two-year (six-semester), 62-credit-hour program culminating in capstone experiences and professional internships.
During the first year of the program, students will study on the University of Georgia campus in Athens and at the new Athena Studios, taking courses focused on writing for the screen, producing, directing, film history, audio production and lighting, among others.
During the second year, students will work on capstone projects and internships while living at the Town at Trilith, and taking classes through the Georgia Film Academy at Trilith Studios. Second-year courses are expected to include advanced writing, advanced production, advanced directing, computer animation and thesis films.
The MFA Film program will feature student-created films and television projects produced in collaboration with industry professionals each year.
Applications for the new UGA MFA Film cohort starting in Fall 2023 are due January 15, 2023.
