Hi there. My name is Heather and I was looking at Masters programs in Television/Film with the goal to become involved working in television afterwards. I've not worked professionally in television or film before, though, so I don't exactly know what I'm looking for. Wicked naive, I know. I graduated with an English Literature BA three years ago from UMass Amherst and live just outside of Boston.
Anyway, I don't know, this comm is a little dead, but I thought I'd put it out there to see if anybody on LiveJournal had anything to say about any of these colleges. (I also asked on the schools' comms to see if anyone on LJ there had any comments.)
So I'm just gonna put a list I have of these programs and I guess, if you're familiar with them, were in them, knew someone in them, or went to the university, drop a comment and let me know what you thought?
Yeah, I know the biggies Columbia, NYU, USC and UCLA are distinctly lacking in my list, but you could probably guess why. ;-)
