GRADUATE FILM FAQ

Hopefully this page will answer any questions you may have. If your question has not been answered below, please feel free to call us 212-998-1780 or email us at sc10@nyu.edu.  

DO I NEED A BACHELOR’S DEGREE TO APPLY?

This is a Master's Degree program. You must have a Bachelor’s Degree or be in the process of completing your Bachelor's Degree in order to be considered for the program. If you have a question about this, please contact Graduate Admissions.

IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT?

No. Individuals of all ages are welcome to apply as long as they hold a Bachelor’s Degree.

CAN I VISIT THE DEPARTMENT?

Yes. The Graduate Film Program offers weekly tours during the Fall & Spring semesters. The public can sign up online here.

We encourage prospective students to attend a tour where a current Graduate Film student will speak about the program, show our facilities, and answer questions. The Department discourages drop-in visits as visitors are not guaranteed the opportunity to speak to a representative without prior notice.

In addition, weekly information sessions are held during the month of October. This is an open forum where questions will be answered. Dates and a sign up will be available online here.

Prospective students visiting New York who are unavailable for tours or information sessions may contact the Graduate Film Admissions Coordinator, Susan Carnival (212-998-1753), to request an appointment.

DO YOU REQUIRE THE GRE FOR ADMISSIONS?

The GRE is not required for application to the MFA Program. However, if you are applying to the Dual Degree Program, the MCAT or GRE is required. Please contact the Stern School of Business for detailed information.

HOW LONG IS THE PROGRAM?

The program is 3 consecutive years of coursework. Students may graduate at the end of the 3 years, or maintain matriculation for one additional year to complete their thesis.

DO YOU OFFER ON CAMPUS HOUSING?

There are a limited number of spaces available for graduate students in campus housing. We suggest taking advantage of our large network of current students and alumni who are often subletting their apartments or looking for roommates.
