In collaboration with The Second City, DePaul University’s School of Cinematic Arts is now offering graduate and undergraduate degrees in Comedy Filmmaking.
The Master’s Concentration in Comedy, housed within DePaul’s celebrated MFA Screenwriting program, is the only terminal degree of its kind in the world, while the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Comedy Filmmaking will be the most comprehensive undergraduate degree in Comedy Filmmaking in the country. Students take classes at both The Second City and DePaul University.
These innovative programs will enable students to develop their own comedy voice and original material through a methodology honed over decades by The Second City. Upon completion of either degree, students will have in hand a rich portfolio of original scripts and films to help best prepare them for a career in the industry following graduation.
