Cinema Studies (Minor)

Department Website

Program Description

Cinema Studies is devoted to the history, theory, and aesthetics of film and the moving image. The approach to cinema is interdisciplinary and international in scope and is concerned with understanding films in terms of the material practices that produce them and within which they circulate. While film constitutes the primary object of study, the department also considers other media that fall within the realm of sound/image studies (e.g. broadcast television, video art, and online technologies) to be within its purview.
