The Global MFA in Cinematic Arts

at Maharishi International University's

David Lynch Graduate School

of Cinematic Arts

THIS GLOBAL MFA PATH
PREPARES ITS STUDENTS TO BREAK NEW GROUND
IN THE ART OF MOTION PICTURES.

Maharishi International University's David Lynch Graduate School of Cinematic Arts has been inspired by David Lynch and has incorporated his three foundations for learning: technical knowledge, learning by doing, and Transcendental Meditation.® 

His creative vision and his insight on the primacy of consciousness in creativity and film guides and inspires this unique degree path. We study his films, his paintings, and all of his cross disciplinary art, encouraging our students to undertake their own unbounded journeys in creativity. Please note: David Lynch is not a professor at MIU and has no responsibilities regarding the university and its curriculum, professors, and budgetary processes. Students will not have interaction with him during their enrollment.

This largely online degree path provides​ occasional, optional opportunities for in person classes, enrollment in courses at partner schools, and small group experiences at major film festivals.

 

You may take up to half of your classes at other universities, including our pending partner institutions in Eastern Europe and China. MIU is itself accredited in the US by the Higher Learning Commission.

We cultivate writers, directors, and other key collaborators in filmmaking. 

We have a will to inspire a new generation of transnational storytellers.
