Entrance Requirements: When completing the application form for admission to UWM, you may indicate your intent to pursue a film degree. The Film Department does not require any additional admission requirements beyond those of the university.
Program Philosophy: Our programs of study focus on the individual student. We nurture students to pursue their particular creative impulses and expand their curiosity so that they may transform into unique, expressive artists and thinkers with a mastery of creative, conceptual and technical skills.
Our dual purpose is to both prepare students for careers in making art of all kinds or working in the media industry while also providing a time and place for students to put aside the demands and constrictions of the professional world and thoroughly explore what it means to develop as an artist. Our faculty and staff are teachers and practicing artists who think of the university as a sacred place where art, ideas, technology and media converge — an environment where students should enjoy ample attention and freedom to flourish.
