Cinema Studies

Program Overview

The Cinema Studies Institute offers a program leading to the Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Cinema Studies. Faculty members have expertise in several areas, including film history, film theory, film analysis, and film and cultural practices. The course-based, one-year MA program offers students the option of a professional internship or a major research paper.

Launching in September 2013, the Doctor of Philosophy program in Cinema Studies addresses the changing role of moving image media within global culture. Past and present configurations of cinema are studied through a constellation of theoretical, textual, social, and historical rubrics. The core curricular offerings engage with debates and questions that persist within the scholarship while also examining how the field contends with emerging disciplinary issues and new intermedial formats. Throughout, the synthesis of history and theory, textual analysis, and cultural study is emphasized.
