Cinema Studies

PROGRAM OF STUDY

18 credit hours required

A curriculum for Cinema Studies  may include coursework in film history, production, film theory, national cinemas, genre studies, authorship, visual culture, history, philosophy, and aesthetics. All courses in the curriculum are devoted primarily to study or production of the moving image. We suggest that a rigorous curriculum will be grounded first of all in a basic understanding of production along with cinema history and theory.

Required Courses

1. Comm 330: Basic Video Production
2. One of the following:
    Cine 201: The Language of Film
    Comm 220 : Introduction to the History of Film

The minor will be completed with courses from the following lists of electives. Students may focus on a production sequence, a sequence in cinema studies, or select from both.

Electives in Production

Comm 427: TV programming and production
Comm 428: Advanced TV production
Comm 480: TV documentary production
