Every year, one student in the graduate M.F.A. program of Film and Media Arts at Temple University is awarded the opportunity to enroll in a course in cinema studies or related studies course at UPENN as part of a unique agreement between FMA and Penn's program in Cinema Studies.
The application should consist of a one-paragraph explanation of why you want to take a course at Penn and how it will help advance your MFA project and/or advance your career goals. You must also include the name of a faculty member in FMA who can speak on your behalf. There may be a follow-up interview. It is recommended that you review courses available on UPenn's Cinema Studies website and/or make contact with faculty whom you think you might like to work with to ask what they might be offering next year. The website for their program is: http://cinemastudies.
