Film Studies Major and Minor
The film studies degree program examines film as one of the dominant art forms of our time, posing all of the moral, aesthetic, ideological, perceptual and epistemological questions important to a modern humanities education. Film studies majors will become acquainted with film's forms, techniques, significant movements, and criticism, and explore film as a cultural force—learning how films intersect with religion, politics, race, gender, values, and globalization.
