Field of Study: Film/Cinema Studies
Description: Film Studies is concerned with the history, criticism, theory, and practice of the cinema, both as an art from and as a documentary record of our time. Using a variety of critical approaches to television, cinema, and new media, film study students acquire specialized knowledge about the history and aesthetics of film, the main currents in film-making, and an appreciation for the work of the world’s great film-makers.

Find out why films that are made in Europe, Latin America, and Australia are so different from most of the films that come from Hollywood. Learn about individual film-makers and why film is both an art form and a social practice that touches our everyday lives.
