Masters Degree? Advanced Training?

Hi all,

I'm an AE / Editor with a B.A. in Journalism. I'm considering whether I should get a masters degree, but I'm not sure what it would be.

I wanted to know what opinions / experiences film people have with pursuing a masters degree related to their line of work in the film industry? If you're someone who went back to school, why did you do it? Has it been worth it? It seems that most people in film don't go back to school, but I definitely wanted to consider the possibility.



  • That depends. Are you interested in teaching? Working in a corporate setting as a employee? Those may be the places where a degree would have some value. Otherwise how would a degree increase your value compared to a very talented person who learned on their own and has a super reel?
