Want to get a Steven Spielberg-level education without his multibillion dollar bankroll? If you’re on the Forty Acres, you’re in the right place.
Ranked 12th on the Hollywood Reporter‘s list of the top 25 film schools in the world, UT-Austin’s Department of Radio-Television-Film pummels the competition with a thriving indie-film scene, student-run television and production studios, and a star-studded list of alumni, including Robert Rodriguez, BS ’08; Thomas Schlamme, BS ’72; and Matthew McConaughey, BS ’93, Life Member.
And if you’ve had the good sense to be born or raised Texan, the less-than-$5,000 price tag for in-state tuition is by far the most affordable of any U.S. school on the list. UT is also one of just two in the nation to offer its students a shot at stardom for less than $10,000 per semester.
The list says UT-Austin has come a long way over the past 40 years, now regularly sending films to the Sundance and Venice festivals. And with big names regularly in town for the South by Southwest film festival, the infusion of talent goes both ways.
