Digital Filmmaking Certificate

The Rutgers Center for Digital Filmmaking (RCDF), within the Mason Gross School of the Arts, offers a 22-credit certificate program open to Rutgers undergraduate students of all majors. Students choose a concentration in either nonfiction or fiction filmmaking, selecting from courses in documentary, fiction, directing, screenwriting, animation, cinematography, and editing. Classes are production-oriented and provide students with hands-on training and access to professional digital filmmaking equipment. Within the certificate program, students are required to take four narrative filmmaking classes that bridge cinema theory and film grammar with practical skills necessary to produce narratives for the screen. RCDF's progressive pedagogy interweaves traditional filmmaking techniques with emerging film technologies and platforms, while also providing students with marketable skills.

The program is built in collaboration with Writers House, Rutgers Department of English, where digital composition courses are offered as gateway classes to the film certificate program. This selective program requires registration on a rolling basis; contact Rutgers Center for Digital Filmmaking for further information.
