  1. Hi all! I am in my last year of my undergraduate and am majoring in Film and Screen Studies (minoring in Critical Race and Ethnicity Studies and Urban Studies). Right now I am feeling pretty lost in searching for a masters program. I was interested in Columbia at first but have read that a lot of classes are undergrad and it is not very contemporary. I was wondering if anyone would like to share their experiences they have had in a similar program/if anyone has recommendations. A lot of film programs are MFA and production based whereas I am more interested in the studies/theory asp

  3. Hi there!Does anyone know how competitive this program is? And how is the Ph.D. placement of this program?
  4. Hello everyone, Seeking advice, opinion and guidance upon my recent decision to pursue my PhD. I have a Masters in Theatre and Literature and built (and ran) a theatre department within a classical music school for many years. I have also lectured in poetry and film and ran art exhibitions for local artists. Because of these varied immersions, it is my true desire to seek a PhD that has intertextuality as its point and purpose. I won't go into the details of the core of my intent but I am wondering if anyone can provide advice on the feasibility of approaching a specific area of
  5. Wanted to start a thread for anyone who applied to an interdisciplinary or "combined" African American studies & Film/Media/Cinema studies program ...or are looking to minor in African American studies/incorporate African American history and culture into a Film/Media/Cinema studies PhD program.
  6. Hi. I currently manage an animated series production in a company in Pakistan. I want a better grounding in film and production aspects. I want to go to a grad school ASAP (deadlines are close) but I am having a hard time finding scholarships and funding for international students in art/film schools. Can anyone help? Any country is good though I prefer the US. I am interested in RIT, Pratt, SCAD, and Chicago NY. If you could mention schools with January deadlines, I would prefer that.
  7. Hello, My question is for anyone who has been accepted to media related PhD programs. I'm looking to apply for Communications/media studies programs and wanted to know for those who have been accepted to these programs what type of background did you have: - what was your GRE score? - past college GPA's - did you have any publication experience? - did you have and related work experience in the field of communications/media studies/film? - what school were you accepted to and what did they offer full funding?
  8. I'm trying to gauge the competitiveness of admissions for MFA film programs. It seems like a lot of the place I've researched accept very few students each year, and almost every program requires a portfolio with the application. I didn't study film production for undergrad (I did art history and film history/theory), so I worry it's a disadvantage to be starting from scratch trying to cobble together some videos for the portfolio in time. I'm applying to 18 schools, but I'm not sure I can make the cut anywhere with so little practical experience in film production. Does anyone have any advice
  9. Howwwdy folks! I'm 33 with a lot of Army years behind me and in my senior year. Kind of a late start but I've found I really enjoy this college thing and have recently decided on doing the graduate program thing, currently rushing to get some applications in and figure this all out. Luckily I should have enough GI Bill left to pay for a Master's so cost isn't an issue. So, any of you philosophers have recommendations for aesthetics programs with a film focus? I've attached a resource from the American Society for Aesthetics that's been helpful but I really wanted to get some feedback
  10. So I'm currently applying for an MFA in film production at UCLA and in the guidelines they don't indicate anything about a personal history statement, however in the application form it seems that we are required to fill it. There are no specific guidelines given and I'm very confused as to how to approach it. I feel like it will sound like my statement of purpose...
  11. This may be a long shot, but is anyone in here in a program focusing on film music composition, theory, and/or production? What are the courses like and what are you hoping to do with the degree? How did you get started on a portfolio/what material did you submit upon entrance to a program like this?
  12. Hi I'm an international student and I recently got into a master's program for NYU and WUSTL. I know at a first glance NYU seems much more superior, but I have a few issues that bugs me. One is obviously the money. WUSTL offered a full tuition remission for one year ( not sure about my 2nd year, they didn't say anything in the letter about extending the offer to my second year) NYU offered about 20k off from tuition for one year. They did say this offer is contingent in my second year, so I need to hold a good academic standing in my first
  13. Hi, I've applied for Emerson Film and Media Art MFA program and hasn't gotten any updates. I checked the portal too but still nothing.. Did anyone get any updates? I don't even know when they're gonna make the decision approximately.
  14. Thought I'd start a thread somewhat akin to last year's, since I can't find one I'm a 2017 graduate with a BA in Asian Studies (maj) and film (min) looking at phd/masters programs in film studies with a focus on east Asia, specifically Japan. As of now, I've contacted Harvard (through EALC, not film and media) Yale, and Chicago, which appear to be the ONLY schools with programs in my area of interest I'm a bit freaked out by the admission stats, for all three, though. Anyone have any suggestions or thoughts on other programs worth looking at?
  15. So all of the forums and columns I have found has been on what it is like to go back to school for law, med, or a social science none of them have focused on art. Anyone have any perspective on attending the same department of graduate program after working in the same field of study for a lengthy period of time?
  16. Thought I'd start a thread as nothing popped up in my search! I come from the UK with a BA in art history and MA that specialised in film studies (though my degree is officially 'history of art', hoping it won't be held against me!) and so far I'm interested in: -Film and Visual Studies at Harvard -MCM at Brown -History, Theory and Crit at MIT (in the arch department, but they accept art historians there's a guy who specialises in my intended topic) I don't have a large choice of locations, as I'm staying on the East Coast to be near my partner who can't move. Also feeling pretty b
  17. Hi, all. This is my first post here, but this forum has been greatly helpful to me in my grad school search so thank you so much! But I digress... I'm a recent graduate with a BA in English Literature from a small but respectable private university in Indiana, and I'm taking a gap year now before applying to PhD programs. My interests are in Gender and Sexuality and others forms of media such as Film and Theatre. I'm also interested in Post-1900s American literature, although it isn't my primary focus. I'm not sure how all to go about wording this in my personal statement to programs, and
  18. Hi. I applied CCA, SFAI only two schools and I got accepted in CCA and SFAI both in MFA Film. Please read my stupid history and help me out guys I have bachelor's degree in Fine Art Painting outside of US, however, my portfolios are kind of filled with videos. I wanted to go for MFA in film so that I can have the opportunity to deeply engage in video/film field and stuff, but anyways I think I want to make videos in the context of art, not like getting into a film industry as a part... I should have done research about more schools carefully cause I kind of wasted last fall - winter
  19. Hey guys! New to the boards! I m currently an MA student looking to apply for Ph.D. programs fro the 2018/2019 academic year. I am currently getting an MA in Art History focusing on critical theory, mostly relating to the exclusion of animation from the art historical canon. I am hoping to continue this project and working with animation, particularly Disney, in a Ph.D program, but I am having trouble with programs that may be open to this. I have been looking at visual studies programs as well, which may be more flexible with my desired area of study. I just have no idea where to start,
  20. I just found out I got a Fulbright for all three years of my phd film program in Scotland! I'm so proud of this opportunity, but I also just got a promotion at my current job in a really great museum. I now get to work with films in a museum. I think i want to work in non-academic sector,/museums, so this is also a great opportunity to keep moving with my career. I think going to school would be great, but i worry about giving up my great job. I can't defer the scholarship nor can I come back to my job. I also just moved in with my girlfriend. What should i do? Thanks!!
  21. So, I'm in a MA urban studies program, and taking courses on media and film. will apply to a PhD next year. I've been doing some research on finding scholars who are doing research on media (would be better if it's on film) and urban space. I found like one person at NYU MCC, and one PhD student there. And I really like the the PhD program at Brown MCM since they are doing a combination of researching and producing, but it looks they have 0 person is doing stuff on urban space. Anyone has any ideas? Thanks a lot!
  22. Hey all! This is my first post on here and I'm terrified really excited. So here's my dilemma: I've completed my undergrad and have always known that I've wanted to go to Graduate School and - oddly enough - I knew it would either be in screenwriting (my undergrad) or I'd go off paths completely and pursue my other passion, which is the study of history. I've had my fill of the film industry after working on a feature film, some commercials, doing the LA thing for a while and whatnot. I'm just not looking for that kind of life any longer. Academia is a place I've always wanted to be and s
  23. I'm having a tough time deciding between two directions for my PhD - English Literature or Film and Media. I have a Master's degree in English Literature and a Bachelor's degree in English with minors in Theatre and Film as well as Linguistics. I've always been drawn to interdisciplinary theories, such as structuralism, post-structuralism, psychoanalysis, critical theory (the Frankfurt School), feminist theory, queer theory, postcolonialism, and deconstruction. My literary interests have been almost exclusively contemporary and postmodern, and I don't particularly value literature as a me
  24. Hi all, I'm in the process of writing my SOP for PhD programs in Film and Media Studies/Visual Cultures/you know, that kind of thing. Some quick background: my B.A. is in Film Studies & Art History, and I earned a minor in English. I wrote my honors thesis on a fairly esoteric, relatively unknown film directed by Orson Welles (F for Fake). In my SOP I state that I'd like to continue research on F for Fake in the hopes of contributing to what is a relatively small body of academic work on the film. F for Fake has a lot of relevant, postmodern issues surrounding it (e.g., authorsh
  25. Hello people! I couldn't find a current forum for folks treading the process of applying/waiting for a decision from Film MFA programs. Let's get the discussion going! I know I have questions about when schools contact you with their decision, which schools give the most funding, and the interview process. Tell later I bid adieu...
