At SFI: a totally innovative and cutting-edge way to earn your BA in Film Degree. It’s Upside-Down and it’s Accelerated

It’s an Upside-Down Degree because…

  • You start making movies your first week of college, not your third year. 

  • At virtually every college or university, you take general education requirements the first two years before starting on your film major your junior year.

  • At SFI, you start with your passion and take your major first.

It’s Accelerated because…
You can earn your BA degree in 3 years instead of 4…or be Ultra-Accelerated and finish even sooner if you have Running Start classes.
