Boston University

Create success.

Who Are We?

Everyone likes to watch movies and television. You, on the other hand, want to create it. And create it well. Learn how in the Boston University College of Communication (COM) Film & Television program.

First and foremost, you’ll hone the art of storytelling. You’ll study writing, image creation, managing and producing, and the theory and history of film and television while developing a deep understanding of the motion picture medium. You’ll acquire the knowledge and skills needed for a career in film or television.

Your degree. YOUR WAY.

Our Film & Television program leads to a Bachelor of Science degree. How you get there is largely up to you. Certain courses are required of all majors to provide a broad foundation in motion picture writing, visual literacy and studies. But the majority of your courses can be tailored to fit your interests and career goals. Choose your focus: Production, Screenwriting, Film and Television Studies or Management/Producing. Take additional courses in production or screenwriting. Pursue a minor from the vast offerings across BU. It’s wide open.

Your first job is OUR JOB ONE.

This is an in-depth program that prepares you for success in the field. It’s hands-on and designed to give you practical knowledge and skills that can be applied right away.

Our student-operated TV production and media service, BUTV10, provides the opportunity to create television programming, live streaming and on-demand content in one of several sound stages. You can sharpen your directing, editing, lighting and camera with access to COM’s state-of-the-art camera equipment and facilities for video, film and editing.
