Come explore the history and theory behind the art form! If you pursue a minor (non-majors) or a concentration (English majors) in film studies, you will engage in a critical examination of film making from the silent era to the contemporary, focusing on multiple genres in both American and foreign films.
This course of study gives you:
- a deeper understanding of the technical development and production of film
- a theoretical framework for analyzing storytelling tin this medium
- the reasons why films have the ability to shape perceptions and culture
- preparation for a career in the film industry and/or an advanced degree
