Boston University Department of Film and Television (Boston, MA) – Internships and Other Opportunities
With a whole host of media companies in town, Boston can’t be beat for putting you within reaching distance of career launchpads.
The department facilitates a lot of opportunities and work experience through its internship program. With an additional campus in L.A., there are chances to work at places like The Jim Henson Company.
There’s a BS in Film and Television and a BA in Cinema and Media Studies, along with an MS in Television and Media Ventures and MFA programs in Cinema and Media Production, Screenwriting, and Film and Television Studies.
Professor John Bernstein, Ph.D., of the Department of Film and Television, says: “In the undergraduate major leading to the BS degree, the department provides a comprehensive exploration of film, TV, and new media.
“The curriculum includes extensive offerings in production (directing, editing, cinematography, sound design, short film production), film and television screenwriting, creative producing, entertainment management, and film and television studies, while ensuring that students receive a broad education across other fields. Students declare their film and television major no later than the second semester of the sophomore year. Although certain departmental courses are required of all majors, students may tailor their curriculum to fit their interests and career goals.
