The MFA program in Film and Media Production at UT embodies the fiercely independent spirit for which Austin’s filmmaking community is renowned. The select group of students from all over the world who join our program share a passion for great stories, a willingness to work hard, and a commitment to taking creative risks. At UT Austin, we mentor these talented artists, spurring them to strengthen their craft, develop their unique voices, and master the art of cinematic storytelling.

  • Year 2: Develop and refine technical skills and strengthen aesthetic, theoretical and conceptual abilities through the completion of the qualifying pre-thesis project; take additional non-production courses.
