Question ID: 106162
How many film schools exist in the USA? I'm interested in both the number of accredited undergraduate and graduate schools which offer degrees in motion picture production as well as un-accredited professional schools offering courses in film production (which might range from 1 day courses to 1 year or longer programs.)

Hello studioboss, I looked at a variety of sites and did not get a consistent answer. Different organizations list different numbers for film schools in this country. Below, I have listed many of the sites with the number of schools they mentioned. Next Frame: THE UFVA STUDENT FILM & VIDEO FESTIVAL; USA http://www.temple.edu/ufva/dirs/text52usa.htm This site lists a comprehensive list of on-line film/video/communication schools and programs by state. There are 556 listed for the US. While Cinemedia lists 254 film schools for the US. http://www.cinemedia.org/welcomes/you.html Film Schools list 51 schools in the US. http://www.filmmaker.com/school/filmschool.html The Academy of Film Schools lists 30 schools in the US. http://www.rivalquest.com/schools/#usdept Film School Confidential: The Insider's Guide to Film Schools http://www.lather.com/fsc/ This site is for a book about film schools. The site lists 26 schools that offer M.F.A.s in film production in the US. Yahoo lists 12 graduate programs in film. <http://dir.yahoo.com/Entertainment/Movies_and_Film/Film_Schools/College_and_University_Departments_and_Programs/Graduate_Programs/> At ACEJMC Accredited Programs, 2002 2003 lists 105 journalism schools that are accredited. Only 3 have film in their names. http://www.ku.edu/~acejmc/STUDENT/PROGLIST.SHTML I am certain that many of the schools that are in the lists above are accredited. But, I could not find a list of accredited schools, other than at the site above. Keywords Used: accredited us film school http://search.dogpile.com/texis/search?q=accredited%20us%20film%20school&geo=no&fs=web&top=1 accredited film http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=accredited+film accredited us film schools http://altavista.com/web/results?q=accredited+us+film+schools&kgs=0&kls=1&avkw=qtrp I hope this helps. If that isnt enough information. Please ask me for a clarification. Thank you pba

This question probably demanded a higher fee. I had no idea such a statistic would be so hard to find. I'm satisfied with the researcher's answer to my first question posted on Google.
