About Film Studies

The Film Studies Program provides interested students a coherent, interdisciplinary education in this major art form, an art form that is--along with television--the predominant way in which cultures represent themselves.

Besides being a part of daily life for many, film has become an increasingly significant part of the Humanities curriculum at the College. Students will encounter courses about film and courses that use films to illuminate cultural and social phenomenon in a number of disciplines, including various Modern Languages, American Studies, English, History, and Literary and Cultural Studies.
