on Friday,December 17,2010 19:12
Individuals who are interested in learning more about the entertainment industry, may want to consider attending a postsecondary institution.
Recently, Florida Atlantic University (FAU) announced that it will begin offering a new master of fine arts degree for individuals who are looking to expand their education. Students will be able to learn more about the technology behind the world of entertainment, according to the University Press.
"The difference between the University of Central Florida and University of Florida programs and the one proposed at FAU is that we do not wish to prepare our graduates to fit into existing media companies," associate provost Diane Alperin told the news source. "We want them to invent new applications that can be tried out at FAU and can be capitalized and become new business ventures in South Florida."
The program is scheduled to debut in fall 2011. It will take students at least two years to complete through 52 earned credits and a six-credit thesis paper. It is specifically designed for individuals who are looking to enter a career in film production, web-based interactive media, video gaming and mobile media.
Employment of actors, producers and directors is predicted to increase by 11 percent over the next eight years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
