Cost of Attending
Estimated Graduate Student Budget

Entering DANM graduate students may be offered financial assistance at the time of admission, based on the strength of their application. Continuing students are informed of their financial support before the beginning of their second-year of study. The most common form of financial support is through teaching assistantships and tuition remissions. Limited graduate assistantships and teaching opportunities may also be available. 

DANM MFA to Ph.D. Opportunities
DANM students whose work dovetails with faculty research in Film & Digital Media (FDM) and who have established a working relationship with FDM faculty will receive special consideration for application to the FDM Ph.D. program at UCSC.
