Can I apply if I did not major in film at my undergraduate school?
Even if you do not major in film in your undergraduate, you can apply for admission.
After admission, we introduce a prerequisite system so that non-filmmakers can better understand their subjects. Until the graduation, students who are not specialized in film can choose four courses from the course of the major of Film in Chung-Ang University's College of Arts (undergraduate). You must submit a confirmation that you have completed all of the prerequisite subjects at the time of eligibility examination.
What’s the difference between Graduate School of “Advanced” Imaging Science Chung-Ang University and other Imaging Science graduate schools?
The Graduate School of Advanced Imaging Science at Chung-Ang University was established in 1999 with the goal of converging engineering technology and visual arts to the first-stage BK21 specialist graduate school support project.
The Graduate School of Advanced Imaging has 20 full-time professors in the Department of Integrated Imaging with a wide range of majors including Digital Imaging, Computer Games, Computer Graphics, Virtual Environment, Arts Engineering, Film Stories, Film Production, Animation Theory, Animation Production and Digital Science Photography.
Through these adjacent majors, you can become a creative artist, or deepen your major by deepening your major in film.
To provide such a wide range of experiences and options, we have opened and managed essential courses such as advanced video seminars and special effect projects.
How should I prepare my admission portfolio or self-introduction?
The portfolio can be freely tailored to the major you are applying for.
For example, if you are majoring in Film Making, you can prepare your own works such as directing, shooting, editing, sound, and special effects.
In the Film Making major, the portfolio is based on the feature / short film that you participates, but if there is no film work involved, you may submit the adjacent work (short story scenario, photo, novel, etc.).
Please submit it in order to prove your film competence. Directing major can replace the portfolio as a short-cut scenario.
If you submit a short-story scenario about 10 minutes or less to be produced in the first semester Basic Production Practice Lecture, the scenario ability is evaluated and reflected.
In the case of film Stories major, it is required to submit 5 ~ 10 A4 pages of criticism about works or writers instead of portfolio, unlike production major.
The school plan should be written in 2 pages so that you can reveal the reasons for admission, the motivation of the film major, the experience related to your film, and what you want to do in the future.
You can freely write your self-introduction by taking advantage of experience in film production and review.
Portfolios and self-introduction documents are important in interviews.
What is the difference between MFA and another master?
The MFA follows a Practical experience curriculum. The Film Making major in MFA course has a detailed major in directing, screenplay, production, shooting, editing, and sound. In case of directing major, three short films must be produced. At the same time, the students will supplement their shortcomings through lectures and common mandatory lectures in other majors.

Through this, we provide opportunities to look at and experience the movie production process from a production perspective.
Also, before graduation, students should participate in workshops and graduation works of majoring as their major and meet the performance standards set by the department

Although it is classified as a special majors in the production of video special effects, we are involved in the schedule and course of Film Making major.
