Why study film in at the University of Missouri? From academic study to production principles, the Film Studies program provides guidance to our students from accomplished research faculty, real world experience through hands-on internship practicums, and opportunities for success beyond the program for our graduates.

Not only does Columbia boast access to major film festivals, but it is also home to a thriving film community that provides our students with practical experience in the field. Whether students are interested in studying films, or making them, the Film Studies Program offers a wide range of courses that meets the students' needs and interests and ultimately provides marketable skills.
