Film Production Degree

Azusa Pacific University’s Bachelor of Fine Arts in Cinematic Arts Production is a comprehensive film production degree that teaches the art and business of film and television production from a story-centered point of view. Students are immersed in hands-on filmmaking with state-of-the-art equipment and first-rate instruction. All of this occurs just 25 miles from Hollywood, in the vibrant cinematic arts community of Southern California, which features superior access to industry professionals and resources.

Beyond simply learning how to use the tools of the trade, students are also challenged to thoughtfully consider how art and culture impact one another and what role the Christian artist plays in the process. All cinematic arts students follow a core of classes that give them a broad understanding of the film and television industry. This multi-faceted approach teaches students the basics of production while also providing a solid critical understanding of the industry from both an historical and business perspective.

Requiring more units than the B.A. in Cinematic Arts, the BFA in Cinematic Arts Production requires the highest standards in arts education. Combining mastery of craft with scholarship, the BFA program encourages the artistic and spiritual growth of students and the exploration of their calling from a thoughtful and culturally engaged Christian worldview.
