Our Graduate Programs are designed for students with research interests in the analysis, histories, and theories of moving image-based visual culture, from the 19th through the 21st centuries. Students work closely with faculty to extend their formal intellectual training and explore film and electronic media as evolving global phenomenon. Advanced training in Film and Media Studies will develop students' scholarly understanding of all forms of the moving image, as well as the artistic, cultural, industrial, philosophical, political, and social implications of these forms.
The Graduate Certificate and MA program emphasize multiple approaches to the academic study of film and media. Graduate alumni have gone on to pursue careers in curating, research, teaching, and other professional activities related to moving image media.
