Film and Creative Media Program

Get creative. Get your master’s.

The Lipscomb University Graduate Studies in Film and Creative media offers two unique degrees designed to educate the next generation of artists to be independent, entrepreneurial filmmakers who graduate ready to create uplifting content for the digital entertainment marketplace.

The Master of Arts (M.A.) in Film and Creative Media is a 17-month, 36-hour graduate program designed to educate the next generation of artists.  In this program, you will learn how to write, produce, direct and edit various genres of content for multiple media platforms including: music videos, commercials, television sitcoms and dramas, and feature films, as well as gain knowledge in film theory and criticism.

The Master of Fine Arts in film and creative media, or M.F.A., is a more intensive degree that allows students the ability to specialize in narrower areas of interest or tracks. The M.F.A. Writer/Director Track is a 62 hour program allowing students to specialize in writing and directing in the areas of TV and film. 

Both the M.A. and the M.F.A. are offered in a way that accommodates working professionals. Courses are offered online, in the evening and occasionally on Saturdays.
