Question by Josh G: REALLY confused about City College of NY’s Film & Video Production major, help?
I would love to apply to CCNY and major in Film & Video Production. However, I’m really confused. When I go to this link: http://www.ccny.cuny.edu/mca/programs/film.html, it shows various requirements for admissions including this:
Admissions Criteria & Creative Portfolio: Students are evaluated and admitted to the program based on 4 criteria:
• Creative Portfolio*
• 1 page Personal Statement
• Passing grade of “C” or better in MCA 10500, 20200, and 12100
• 2.7 cumulative G.P.A. (B-)
*The creative portfolio must consist of film/video work that you have had major creative input on. The portfolio work can be established in several ways:
• Work created in MCA 105 Introduction to Media Production.
• Work created at other colleges (transfer students).
• Independently produced work outside of college.
The BFA degree in Film & Video requires a minimum of 54 credits with the majority of courses in the curriculum being completed in a 4 semester (Fall-Spring), 2-year cycle. The 54 credit total includes MCA 10500, MCA 12100, and MCA 20200 and these courses should be completed before a student applies to the program.
So does this mean I have to do some pre-college stuff before I can even apply for the Film/Video major? I’m really confused.
