The film studies major prepares students to participate in a world increasingly shaped by moving pictures. The major is founded on the principle that the study of cinema and the artistic production of motion pictures complement one another, and all film studies majors perform substantial work in both areas. Through courses that offer a foundation for understanding cinema—and its relation to culture, history, technology and aesthetics—the film studies major teaches students to create and analyze moving images, to produce research, and to make art.
