Film and Media Studies

Laura Kissel, Director


Film and Media Studies students learn to explain and reimagine a society saturated by audio-visual media-from cinema and radio to television, mobile microscreens and video games. Major and minor programs of study cultivate foundational skills in problem solving, writing, research, analysis, oral communication, and collaboration. Students apply those skills to investigations of past, present, and future media artworks, industries and audiences.

Students who might want to major or minor in film and media studies should begin with either FAMS 240 Film and Media Analysis (CC-AIU) or FAMS 300 (CC-GHS) Film and Media History (CC-GHS). FAMS 110 Media Culture (CC-AUI) is designed for non-majors.
