While a Bachelor of Arts provides a foundational education, a Master of Arts allows the student to deepen his or her understanding of arts, culture, and other areas of interest.  An MA may also open new career paths or prepare the student for a doctoral program.

What is an MA in Filmmaking? Such a degree can give students the tools they need to create films and television that entertain audiences. Students can decide to specialize in particular filmmaking skills such as screenwriting, directing, producing, post-production, and cinematography. Each of these specializations can set a student up for a particular career path in movie and television production.

Graduates who obtain an MA in Filmmaking can come away from their programs with many skills, including a firm grasp of creative storytelling and thorough technical knowledge. Students also may gain an understanding of business practices, which can be valuable in a variety of careers.

The cost of a master’s degree in filmmaking changes based on the student’s residency, the university in question, and other factors. Online and in-person degrees may have different tuition rates, even if they are at the same school.

The specialization that the student chooses often guides the individual’s career path. For example, if a student receives an MA in Filmmaking with a concentration in directing, that person will be ready to take on a career as a director of movies, television, commercials, music videos, and more. Likewise, a student who focuses on screenwriting in filmmaking will be better equipped to become a script writer or TV showrunner. Postproduction graduates can become editors, who are needed on anything from movie production to reality television.

Schools across the globe offer master’s programs in filmmaking where students can learn to create compelling films. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
