It is one of the few programs developing a unique program in Indigenous Filmmaking.
ACM offers a core curriculum in three tracks: Cinematic and Digital Production, Computer Animation & Game Design, and Critical Studies. A catalog of courses, application procedures and forms, and program information can be found on the Academy’s website at: www.hawaii.edu/acm.
Linked with the Interdisciplinary Studies program, students have the flexibility to design an individual academic program consisting of a core of ACM courses (listed as IS courses in the Interdisciplinary Studies section), and electives from a variety of UH Manoa departments offering courses in film studies, digital design and technology. Students work in close consultation with faculty to develop an interdisciplinary program that reflects the development of academic, technical, creative and critical thinking skills.
