In the vast international arena of film and television production, creative opportunities abound for students who combine artistry and creativity with a solid education in film theory, criticism, and production techniques. A degree in cinema can be the foundation for a future career as a filmmaker, location manager, editor, camera assistant, writer, producer, casting agent, researcher, or educator.
Iowa stands as one of the foremost literary destinations in the world. Faculty and alumni like Kurt Vonnegut, Flannery O’Connor, and John Irving all found inspiration while working with the legendary Iowa Writers’ Workshop. This established Iowa City as America’s first UNESCO City of Literature, one of only 28 in the world today. That passion and strength in writing will influence everything you do at Iowa, whether it is writing a screenplay, forming a press release, or distinguishing yourself from other job candidates with an amazing cover letter.
