Lights, Camera, Action!

Some of the most inspiring students at SFA are creating their very own cinematic masterpieces, within the program of filmmaking. Filmmaking is the perfect major for those who aspire to learn techniques in production, camera operation, screenwriting, or directing. From the moment our students start their filmmaking journey, they are immersed into a world of creativity. The School of Art prepares these students with the fundamental basics they will need to successfully master their advanced courses. 
As a filmmaking student, you will also enjoy many afternoons screening films, commercials, and documentaries in SFA's cozy cinematography building, located on the south side of campus. The filmmaking program provides fantastic opportunities for our Lumberjacks to showcase their film work in festivals nearby and all over the nation. Often times, you will work as a team with fellow students in your classes and find yourself in the most interesting places, while filming.

Timber!

Within the Arthur Temple College of Forestry there are wide range of major choices that suit our most environmentally conscious students at Stephen F. Austin State University. Fortunately for our Lumberjacks, the SFA campus is surrounded by miles of east Texas forests, which creates a perfect environment for a student majoring in forestry. The four undergraduate programs dedicated to Forestry are Forest Management, Forest Wildlife Management, General Forestry, and Spatial Sciences. This major also accommodates those who are interested in online and distance learning. 
One of the things we find most interesting about this major is the historical and greatly successful student organization, the SFA Sylvans. The Sylvans were created at SFA in 1946 and compete against other schools around the nation in technical and physical events related to Forestry (archery, axe throwing, log chopping, pole climbing, compass and passing, etc.). Our very own Jack Walker, Grant Korbel, is an avid Sylvan and won first place in a competition this past year for DBH estimation. These students are truly living the Lumberjack experience.
