Film Studies (B.A.)

The film studies major equips students both to understand film as a culture-shaping force and to use it as a way to purse the cultural mandate. Film studies majors learn to read and write effectively and look at the work with a critical eye, but most importantly, the student develops a socially applicable and culturally significant audio-visual literacy. Film studies majors practice the vital activities of analysis and synthesis that prepare them for positions within film companies, film archives, festivals, work as art managers, critics, journalists, independent artists, and teachers.
