The major in Film Studies provides students with critical skills and multiple perspectives on historical and contemporary media forms. It promotes the study of film and media in their aesthetic, social, cultural, political and technological contexts and expands students’ understanding of media as essential elements of our global cultural environment.
In recent years, some of our Film Studies graduates have gone to pursue Masters and Doctoral degrees in Film Studies/Cinema and Media Studies/Screen Studies programs at UCLA, Northwestern University, American University, Boston University, and the University of Chicago.
