The Masters in Digital Cinema is a complete train wreck. As far as faculty go it is the blind leading the blind.They are inexperienced, most of them, if they have experience, have it in television and have no idea about film digital or otherwise. They give information that is not only not industry standard, it is just plain wrong. The courses are awful-disorganized, badly written and useless. Most of the course work is online and the online courses are completely disorganized with incorrect dates, no real syllabus with due dates and grading requirements that have nothing to do with the actual assignments. Almost no feedback is given. The on campus residency is a joke. Students are forced to make films from scripts they have little say over that come from a playwriting program and are extremely unsuitable for film. Students are told one thing before enrolling and confronted with an entirely different reality. It is concealed from students that the residency will be triple charged and will negatively impact financial aid-that students may depend on for living allowances.

The University administration sets a new low standard in receptivity and care about students. The financial aid office is incompetant at best and deceptive and deliberately obstructive. Information on the online student portal is meaningless and frequently completely incorrect.

Run away fast before you waste time and money on a degree where your thesis will be judged by people that aren't qualified to judge a the most amateurish festival entry, but who will attempt to impose ridiculous requirements.

You will be told that the university helps you to organize funding for your thesis film and this is patently false. You will be stuck funding the entire thing with no resources that any other schools offers.
