Southern Utah University recently received accreditation approval for a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Filmmaking. A collaboration between SUU’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences and the College of Performing and Visual Arts, this degree program will be available beginning in fall of 2022.
"Our interdisciplinary filmmaking degree will be the only BFA in the state of Utah; this is exciting because it means that all of the students in that major will leave SUU with a discernible skill connected to the film industry,” said Dr. Jean Boreen, dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at SUU. “Further, the combination of courses our students can choose from will guarantee that they can appreciate the history of and theory around film even as they learn the techniques they will need to be successful in the field.”
The filmmaking program will have film studios, a digital lab, recording studio, and classrooms housed in the SUU’s new general classroom building, which will be open for classes in spring of 2023. Students interested should reach out to their advisor for more information.
Southern Utah University is an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) and Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). More information about the BFA program for filmmaking will be made available closer to the official launch in fall of 2022.
