Film & Screen Studies

  • Film and screen studies is an interdisciplinary program devoted to teaching students to understand moving images not just as entertainment, but also as aesthetic creations and an art form composed of cultural/historical artifacts.These cultural forms saturate our environment and are partof our globalizing world: we are inundated by cinema, television shows, YouTube clips, game animation, advertisementseven the videos we so casually shoot on small mobile devices.
  • A minor in Film and Screen Studies can prepare students for graduate study or careers within the film industry as theatre producers, analysts and consumers of moving images. The minor also complements major studies in most fields; for example, Interactive Media Technology, Graphic Arts, Speech Communication, Marketing, English Studies, Film History, Theater, Global Studies, Music and Journalism.
