The Peter Stark Producing Program is an innovative two-year (four semester) full-time graduate program designed to prepare a select group of highly motivated students for careers as independent film and television producers or as executives in motion picture, television and new media companies.

A producer is the person who causes the film to be made. A good producer causes it to be made well.
- Lawrence Turman, Chair

Approximately 24 Peter Stark Program students are enrolled each Fall. There are no Spring admissions. The curriculum places equal emphasis on the creative and the managerial, in order to enhance and develop artistic skills and judgment while providing a sound background in business essentials. Each course is continually updated to ensure that the Stark program remains responsive to the needs of our students and the ever-changing motion picture, television and new media field.

Peter Stark Producing Program students collaborate on a 7-minute sound film.
