Television, Radio & Film

Whether you plan on hammering the slate, directing the film or providing that behind-the-scenes voice, you can gather the necessary skills here during our television, radio and film graduate year.

Our graduate television, radio and film program will show you how movies are directed, how TV and film scripts are written and how radio programs are produced. You'll learn how to tell stories with visuals and audio. You'll study systems of production, distribution and exhibition. And you will work with our experienced faculty to build your own program based on your interests and goals.

You'll also learn from successful and famous guest speakers who visit campus or join classes via Skype. Our connections in Los Angeles, New York and in other global entertainment hubs can provide you with professional advice and inside tips on how to create for television, radio, film and the web.

"You can specialize in a specific aspect of media, be it writing, management or production." Blake Stilwell G'08, G'13
