To assist you in seeing some of the education options that are available to you, Course Advisor has created its Best Value Film, Video & Photographic Arts Bachelor's Degree Schools in the Middle Atlantic Region ranking. Our analysis looked at 58 schools in the Middle Atlantic Region to see which bachelor's degree programs offered the best value experiences for film students with the aim of identifying those quality schools that are more affordable than some of their counterparts.

When determining this ranking, we place a high emphasis on the school's quality as well as its sticker price. Even though a college may be affordable, it may not offer value. Specifically, our score for quality is discounted by the published tuition and fees charged by the given college. This gives the cost per unit of quality for each college. The more quality your dollar buys, the better the value.

Our calculations use out-of-state tuition and fees in our nationwide and regional rankings. For statewide rankings, we use average in-state tuition and fees.
