The Cinema Studies program is devoted to the stylistic, historical, and theoretical analysis of film. Students learn about film as a unique mode of communication in the 20th and 21st centuries, while also investigating what it is that film can be said to share with allied art forms. In addition to surveys of major world cinemas, students in the program will also be concerned with many questions about the relation between aesthetics and politics as well as how moving images have an impact on personal and cultural identities and on society in general.
