UTSA’s Film and Media Program

UTSA’s Film Studies program offers an experience unlike any other in the area. The “Film and Media Studies” BA in Multidisciplinary Studies combines three disciplines (film history, culture and theory, and production) into a program of study that allows you to develop critical thinking and writing skills, creative experience, and a professional portfolio. You’ll have access to more than 40 possible courses–on topics ranging from screenwriting to digital media production, from film history to the role of race and gender in film, from music and film to politics in film–which you’ll have the flexibility to select and build into a degree plan that meets your goals and culminates in a shared senior seminar and the opportunity to pursue an internship with many possible non-profits, corporations, or professional film productions.
