The BS in Digital Cinema at DePaul CDM is an innovative program that seeks to define and to develop the evolving relationship between cinema production technologies and creative artistic expression. The intensive technical emphasis of the Bachelor of Science degree prepares students for work in live-action special effects, 3-D animation, and game development. Students in this program will gain practical production experience through classes, internships and Project Bluelight, the school's professional motion picture production company, working alongside faculty and professionals on a short or feature film. We offer our students an opportunity to defray the cost of making their own films through the Undergraduate Production Fund.
In 2013, The Hollywood Reporter ranked DePaul's School of Cinema and Interactive Media one of the top 25 best film schools in the country.
In 2014, MovieMaker Magazine ranked Chicago as the #1 "Big City" to work in as a filmmaker.
