Digital Cinematography

Bachelor of Science
Degree Overview

There’s more than one way to tell a story, and more than one way to relay that story to the world. In a culture where millions of people turn daily to the digital realm for news and entertainment, content creators must be able to adapt content for a variety of mediums.

Full Sail’s Digital Cinematography bachelor’s degree outfits you for this changing landscape by pairing knowledge of the latest technological tools with a strong foundation in storytelling. You’ll learn to create dynamic content by emulating the workflow of an actual studio – beginning with script development and production planning, filming, post-production, and finally, distribution.
