Welcome to the Department of Radio-Television-Film

Master the evolving 21st-century media landscape.

Welcome to Austin, TX—home to great film festivals, a renowned live music scene, and some of today’s hottest feature filmmakers, TV show runners, and internationally recognized media scholars. And at the heart of Austin, seeding both the high-tech industry and vibrant arts community, is The University of Texas. It’s where you can write / direct / edit / shoot / produce the next Hollywood blockbuster, original television pilot, or small indie gem; where you can gain hands-on training with the latest and greatest animation and visual effects technology; and where you can launch your creative and professional career by honing your understanding of the historical, cultural, industrial and global contexts surrounding film, television, and digital media.
