Our Philosophy

The major in film provides undergraduates a strong foundation in both film production and film studies.

Film Production

Students gain the practical skills to succeed on a film set in both below-the-line (i.e. crew) and above-the-line (i.e. creative) roles and experience the mechanics of film production in industry and independent settings through short film productions.

Film Studies

We believe the analytical and practical sides of filmmaking strike a necessary balance in a well-rounded film education. Students develop facility in critical and analytical thinking through the study of global film culture, history and aesthetics.
