Bachelor of Film and Television degree program at Sheridan combines hands-on, real-world experience backed by theoretical learning in all aspects of the industry.
Lights, Camera, Education!
In the first two years of this degree, you’ll get a taste of everything this industry has to offer. Under the guidance of industry-experienced professors, you’ll choose electives in direction, production, writing and editing to find where your talent lies. In your final semesters, you’ll specialize — documentary or drama production, scriptwriting, directing, cinematography, editing or sound.
Your Own Film
Many students also want to achieve a portfolio film, and this program culminates in an exciting capstone project: create your own short film, television or transmedia project. You’ll work in teams, partnering with others in different specializations to pitch, seek funding, write and produce your project. You’ll go through the same process filmmakers do to prepare you for the real industry.
Real World, Practical Experience
Internships will provide you with numerous opportunities to integrate your classroom learning with real work experiences. This program features various opportunities for work-integrated learning:
- A 14-week work placement (between semesters 6 and 7)
- A portfolio project
- Opportunities to build relationships with industry mentors
This program contains a mandatory internship for all students during the summer (May–August) between the 3rd and 4th year.
Internships are a form of work-integrated learning that links classroom learning with work experience within a professional environment. Internship work terms are related to the academic studies of the student and may be paid or unpaid. The work terms provide an opportunity to learn by doing. You’ll apply theory to practice, develop a meaningful view of the working world, and cultivate an awareness of yourself as a professional.
If you spend your time watching, appreciating and discussing films of all types (whether documentaries, movies or television); and if you want to write, direct, produce or edit, this is your scene.
