Film and Media Studies

Movies involve every mode of expression, from movement to music, from narrative to news. No medium is better suited to the study of communication and self-expression. Movies are also a fascinating window into recent and contemporary cultures, revealing things about those cultures, from their “common knowledge” to their secret desires, attitudes, beliefs, and values.

The Film & Media Studies program at F&M opens these avenues of research to students across the curriculum. The program offers courses in motion picture history, criticism, theory, and production. Film & Media Studies can be a major, a minor, half of a joint major with another program, or part of a self-designed interdisciplinary Special Studies major.
