Welcome from the Artistic Director


Welcome to the Ohio University Film Division website. Thanks for taking the time to consider our program, which is ranked among the finest in the USA and attracts a truly diverse student population from throughout the world.

The Film Division offers two graduate degree programs: the Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) in Filmmaking and the Master of Arts in Film Studies (M.A.). We also offer a B.F.A. in Filmmaking through the Honors Tutorial College at Ohio University. Our curriculum offers a fresh approach for the emerging film and digital motion picture artist and the film studies scholar. Because we are a small division, we are able to offer you a personalized, interactive, and intensive education. Our dedicated and talented faculty consists of distinguished film scholars and working professional artists.

Please consider us if you seek an educational environment emphasizing creativity, excellence, and diversity in which talented, motivated, and disciplined students come to examine and develop the arts and crafts of the motion picture as art form, educational tool and dynamic cultural force in the 21st century.

If possible, please take the time to visit us, and we will introduce you to our excellent facilities and staff. Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.

Very Best Wishes,
Steven Ross
Artistic Director/Head Film Division
