    The cinema department in the college of fine arts consists of two main branches that the students finally gain their specialty in one of these two branches. The branches are: Directing and Acting. The period study in each branch is four years. The main program of specialty in both branches starts in the third year. In other words, in the first and second years students study the cinema science and its principle in general. In the third year students on the bases of their qualification and ability divided on these two branches and they continuously study until they gain their certificate in one of these two fields. The students in the Directing branch should give their graduation agenda to the department which includes a short film project that its scenario and direction done by the student him/herself. The students in the acting branch will participate as actors in that filming agenda. For the academic year (2013 – 2014) the Cinema department committee decided to change the department’s study programs and merge both branches to become one and study the general cinema science. The First year students in the academic year (2014 – 2015) studied this new program for the first time. For the next two years all of the four study years’ students will study this new program. Eventually, the branches will be abolished.
