Movies are the ultimate art, involving every mode of expression, from movement to music, from narrative to news. No medium is better suited to the study of communication and self-expression. Movies are also a peerless window into culture, revealing everything from our "common knowledge" to our secret desires. No form is better suited to the study of society's attitudes, beliefs, and values.
F&M's Film & Media Studies program opens these avenues of research to students across the curriculum. The program offers courses in film history, criticism, theory, video production, and related skills. Film & Media Studies can be a Special Studies major, a minor, or a concentration within a theatre major.
