Cinema Arts

Create your Vision in Downtown Pittsburgh

Cinema arts students begin producing creative work starting day one. In our professional laboratory, students work with state-of-the-art equipment in a dynamic, collaborative educational environment. Our graduates are equipped with the tools and know-how needed to thrive in their chosen field.

Cinema Arts Degree Programs

The Department of Cinema Arts offers cutting-edge B.F.A. and B.A. degrees in:

Bachelor of Fine Arts Degrees

The B.F.A. degrees offer an immersive, in-depth experience to prepare students to be professional filmmakers, screenwriters and animators.

Bachelor of Arts Degrees

The B.A. degrees offer more versatility to students who want to gain experience in filmmaking, screenwriting and animation, but also desire more flexibility in structuring their careers.

Showcasing our Students

Each year, a select group of cinema arts students attend a showcase screening in Los Angeles to promote and introduce their work to industry professionals and alumni. Students also visit television stages, studios and visual effects and post houses.
