FTT offers both a scholarly and a creative context for the general liberal arts student as well as those students seeking intensive preparation for advanced study in Film, Television, or Theatre.  The hands-on nature of our curriculum, combined with a holistic, broad-based approach and a very high degree of student-faculty interaction, provides students with a singular educational opportunity.

In addition to coursework, the Department offers a 4-show season of plays to support its theatre curriculum and student artistic development.  Student film work is featured annually in the Notre Dame Student Film Festival, which for 29 years has served as a launching pad for student filmmakers as they begin their careers in the film, television, and entertainment industry. FTT also strongly encourages and fosters undergraduate research through the Senior Thesis Program.

Each student majoring in FTT works with a faculty advisor to create an individualized plan of study based on his/her interests and goals.

FTT is housed in the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, with additional production facilities inside Notre Dame Studios
