Film at Jacksonville University
The Bachelor of Arts in Film offers students a comprehensive experience in the creation of independent motion pictures through a rigorous, hands-on production centered curriculum. The JU Film program strives to create master visual storytellers who can connect with their audiences intellectually and emotionally.
The major in film leading to the BA degree is designed for students who intend to pursue professional careers or graduate study in the visual arts after college. JU's Film program empowers the creative innovators of tomorrow by training them in all aspects of the arts and crafts of the moving image, from the aesthetic to the technological. We affirm the importance of storytelling as the form in which human beings give weight and meaning to the most important passage of their lives.
After acceptance to the University, prospective film majors must complete a portfolio
review in person or by means of electronic submission. Portfolio reviews are scheduled
four (4) times throughout the academic year and are used to determine the student’s
skill level and possible scholarship awards. Limited art scholarship recommendations
and grant awards are available. Learn more about portfolio requirements at www.ju.edu/lbscfa.
