All of our students gain practical professional experience.
Students working on professional film sets, participating in main-stage productions, and interacting closely with faculty advisors and mentors.
Through teaching and production work, our department prepares students to succeed professionally in the Film and Theatre industries, while educating students across disciplines in the fundamental skills of collaboration, communication, and creativity. The UAF Department of Theatre and Film provides an undergraduate BA degree in Film & Performing Arts with concentrations in Film or Theatre. We also offer minors in both Theatre and Film.
Film & Performing Arts majors take a shared core of three classes (Fundamentals of Acting, Film Set Production I, and Introduction to Production Design) and then choose a concentration in either Film or Theatre. All of our courses can be found under the “FLPA” designator in course finder and in the 2019-20 catalog.
The Spring 2020 course schedule is now available! See what Film and Performing Arts classes are being offered, and meet with your adivsor. Registration begins November 11!
