The Department of Communication at Shiv Nadar University aims to establish itself as a premier institution for media production education in India. We follow an inter-disciplinary approach to ensure that our students are provided with a thorough grounding in all aspects of film and television production. The core philosophy of the Department of Communication at Shiv Nadar University is that a filmmaker can tell effective stories only if he or she is continuously engaged in exploring the world and constantly striving to understand its endless mysteries. We believe that in order to tell unique and engaging stories, it is essential that students deepen their understanding of themselves, as well as the wider world that they inhabit. To this end, the department will ensure that students are nurtured in an environment conducive to unleashing their creative potential. The goal of the Department of Communication at Shiv Nadar University is to create skilled artists with unique voices.
MFA in Film & Television
We are pleased to launch our graduate program in film and television production. This professional program emphasizes all aspects of media production, with a focus on Direction. Designed to provide students with a broad-based learning platform in all filmmaking crafts, including Direction, Cinematography, Editing, Screenwriting, Producing and Sound Design, the program lays equal emphasis on fiction and non-fiction forms. In keeping with our philosophy of encouraging students to discover their potential as filmmakers, students have the option of focussing on a craft other than Direction from the second semester onwards. Film and Television are both immensely powerful and distinctive mediums and the MFA program is designed to allow students to attain proficiency in both.
The program will be taught by highly qualified faculty, each with a background of formal training at a premier institution, as well as eminent guest and visiting faculty. The department believes in personalized mentoring through an excellent teacher-student ratio.
To ensure that students’ learning experience is abreast with worldwide industry practices, the Department of Communication at Shiv Nadar University is equipped with state of the art facilities and infrastructure.
The program is full-time, residential and of two years’ (4 semesters) duration.
Eligibility: Bachelor’s degree (in any discipline)
