The Master of Fine Arts Degree or Certificate is a 60-plus credit hour program awarded in six disciplines:
Cinematography
Directing
Editing
Producing
Production Design
Screenwriting

The Conservatory's program is highly structured, involving continuous production work during which Fellows experience both the creative and physical collaborative process. Fellows pursue their chosen discipline's professional curriculum as well as deepen their overall understanding through participation in frequent Master Seminars with world-renowned visiting filmmakers. In 2009-2010, the list of visiting filmmakers included: Cherien Dabis, Frank Darabont, Jon Favreau, Werner Herzog, Jason Reitman and Steven Soderbergh.

While classroom exercises are valuable, the Conservatory puts more emphasis on fully planned and realized production than any other academic program. AFI Fellows collaborate on and collectively produce more than 120 short narrative productions each year.
