Develop your intellectual, creative, and technical skills as you prepare to embark on a professional career in the film industry. Your coursework will provide you with core disciplines and filmic knowledge as well as practical experience in filmmaking. BFA and diploma students produce and work on several films while in the program.

Film production is a hands-on program where you learn by doing. Filmmaking is a creative, dynamic process requiring the cooperation and creative input of many people. Good filmmaking requires that those involved have a broad knowledge base. The goal of this program is to graduate creative, independent filmmakers with the skills, ideas, and initiative to shape the industry.

Not only will you learn in the classroom and through assignments, but you will learn from more senior students as they assist on student film sets outside of class. Directed studies credit is possible for students who complete internships.

Students will learn theory and techniques of motion picture production with options to study more deeply in areas of documentary filmmaking, alternative cinema, screenwriting and producing. Additionally, students are expected to work collaboratively and create their own short films in their final year.

The department will have production equipment and post-production platforms available for our students, however, accepted students should have their own consumer-level camera and computer with an editing platform.

12 hour clinical rotations and school work, keeping up with exercise and a social life -- it's all stressful. UBC will push you, because hospitals will push you. I volunteered at BC Children's before applying to get an idea of what I was getting into. I recommend you do the same.

I am in year three and started in biology. The UBC-Vancouver program goes for 20 months. Okanagan has a direct entry program if you want to start in nursing right away. Both are really good programs and I'm happy to be here. The acceptance rate is around 20% each year.

Talking to people ahead of me in the program and recent grads, I know there will be excellent work opportunities waiting for me when I graduate. Just make sure you know what you are signing up for!

The master of data science at UBC was developed by the university's Computer Science and Statistics Departments to give students interested in data science a fast track to a great career. I'm just starting the degree, but so far I'm impressed by the students in my cohort, who are not only smart but passionate about applying what they learn to their careers and various research interests. I chose the program because of how practical I thought it would be compared to some other master's programs. The schedule so far is intense, with courses packed into two and four-week sessions that us cover topics in depth. I'll come back to leave a longer review after I graduate, but so far I'm very glad I chose this program.
