Emerson College (Boston, MA) – Comedy Wild Card

Dubbed “the first degree of its kind in the country,” Emerson’s BFA in Comedic Arts is a good choice for moviemakers who are also mirth makers.

The school promises to foster “well-rounded triple-threats: writers, performers, and producers who are awake and aware, and whose comprehension of the world affords them the ability to comment through humor.”

Whether it’s screen, stage, or print, all aspects of comedy are studied including its “historical, cultural and theoretical dimensions as a global art form.”

The school, based in a city famous for generating comedic genius, has partnerships with Funny or Die and Upright Citizens Brigade.

It also recognizes the importance of L.A., offering a semester at its campus there and hosting an annual L.A. film festival.

University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, PA) – Extensive Exceptional Training

Yale University (New Haven, CT) – Esteemed Theory and Criticism Training

    Surprisingly, the Olympic College Film School (Bremerton, WA), a comprehensive accredited program with two and four-year options, with an outstanding faculty, new facilities designed just for the film school, new technology with a focus on Digital Filmmaking, access to Seattle-based companies, and the lowest four-year tuition around (less than $35,000) was missed.
