Program Description

Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film Art

Paris College Of Art

For centuries, the world’s greatest thinkers and artists have come to Paris to learn, create, and find inspiration.

This program gives you the chance to do the same. Through a groundbreaking partnership with Emerson College, students may now apply to the new, joint Global BFA in Film Art.

In this one-of-a-kind program, you’ll get to create everything from experimental films and videos to gallery installations, web series, and public art — in short, you’ll be making the film and media art that shapes and defines our multicultural world. The program’s global learning environment will help you expand your intercultural competence, grow your communication abilities, cause you to challenge your own assumptions and frames of reference, and grant you a new perspective — in life, in learning, and maybe through your camera lens. As renowned French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard said: “I know nothing of life except through the cinema.”

The Global BFA program in Film Art draws on the expertise and reputations of both Paris College of Art and Emerson College and spans locations in Paris, Boston, and the Netherlands. Students will benefit from the highest international standard of film and art education within an American academic framework.
