Production Courses

For Film Studies Majors

The Film Production Focus Area encompasses a wide range of professional skills, designed to let students concentrate in a specific field like cinematography, editing, or animation. This focus area can also be approached in an all-encompassing manner, combining multiple skills depending on the student’s interests and career aspirations. Students interested in working in any type of film including narrative, documentary, art/experimental, and/or animation should make an appointment with Program Coordinator Matt Swift to discuss course planning options, internships, university resources for filmmaking, local filmmaking organizations, and much more.

For Moving-Image Production Majors

When selecting electives in the major, students are advised to consult faculty and advisors. The list below provides some examples of possible courses students could enroll in. Other possibilities may be available depending on if you want to explore internships, study abroad, undergraduate research, screenwriting, or explore a non-production based field study. 

To schedule an appointment to begin planning the Focus Area email  Program Coordinator - Matt Swift at swift.23@osu.edu
