What colleges offer good courses on video production?
I am looking to attend a college after high school which has video production courses. I would like to know which colleges offer courses on video production or something similar to video production
Thanks for reaching out. I am quite a bit biased here, but to me (if you can afford it and/or land a scholarship), there is no place better than the S.I. Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse University. We Newhouse alumni really do rule the world. It’s just a matter of time before the rest of you figure that out. 😏
With that said, there are many other very reputable communication schools as well. Ithaca, Boston University, Missouri, USC (Southern California, not South Carolina), Northwestern are all good. Lyndon State (New Hampshire) is underrated as well.
