The Film Studies Lynk: Classroom to Career

Knowing and Making a Mediated World

In a world ever more dominated by moving images, film studies majors study the history of the world’s cinema in courses that focus on national and transnational issues, on genres such as the Musical, or on individual directors such as Pedro Almodovar, Alfred Hitchcock, and Ousmane Sembene. Supported by a knowledge of film theory, students also create their own images through courses in film and video production so as to become active shapers of the world in which we live.
