The Film Studies Program offers a major that focuses on film analysis and covers the history of cinema, national and global cinemas, film theory and genres, documentary film, and contemporary visual culture. As a classic liberal arts discipline, film studies teaches the fundamental skills that make a college degree essential in career-oriented jobs: research, information management, critical analysis, cogent development of ideas, developing and testing of hypotheses, and writing and communication. It combines an emphasis on critical thinking, research, problem-solving, written expression, and cultural literacy with the discipline's unique attention to visual analysis. Students emerge with a greater degree of visual literacy at a time when our culture is becoming increasingly dependent upon visual communication.
