Film Studies

Film Studies | Courses | Faculty

The film studies program introduces a critical appreciation of film which, like a critical appreciation of literature, increases the historical, political, social, and cultural awareness of the viewer/reader. The variety of the film offerings ensures that students will be exposed to foreign cultures and different worldviews; will deal with issues of gender and identity in past and present societies; will study the evolution of Hollywood filmmaking, from the silent era to contemporary times; and will become familiar with alternative cinemas (American and foreign) that both challenge and often influence the Hollywood paradigm.
