Temple University's Film & Media Arts Department (FMA) is now accepting applications for the newly created San Francisco Study Away - Summer Program. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis beginning in December, 2013. The deadline for all uploaded documents is February 28, 2014. The FMA San Francisco Program provides undergraduate and graduate students with academic, experiential learning and professional experiences in new media technologies, film, art, and ecology that are unique to the San Francisco Bay Area. Internships are available in Berkeley, San Francisco, and Silicon Valley. The University of California, Berkeley campus serves as our base for coursework, housing, and special events. It is an ideal location to access the Bay Area Rapid Transit system (BART) to attend lectures, internships, events and excursions.

The Film & Media Arts Department offers Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Master of Fine Arts (MFA) programs that focus on the development of creative and technical skills in film, video, audio and new media and the theoretical understanding of media and culture.
