Film and Television Studies



The moving image is the most significant art form of the twentieth century.

By studying a Liberal Arts pathway in Film and Television Studies, you’ll develop a unique way of understanding the world you live in. You will be exposed to a diverse film and television culture at the forefront of change as our means of viewing evolve.

Why study the Film pathway?

Like Liberal Arts, Film and Television Studies is a close-knit, friendly, and contemporary department. It has an expansive range of expertise across Film and Television Studies, and you will be guided to pursue your academic and creative passions through traditional forms of learning alongside new forms of digital media production.

In Liberal Arts, you will consider how cultural works may transform society and change ways of thinking, and you will explore the circulation of ideas through different texts, documents, and platforms. This interdisciplinary background will prepare you well to explore history, politics, philosophy, sociology, the visual arts, drama, and literature through the prism of film and television. You will examine the power of the moving image in different social, historical, and cultural contexts. Your creative thinking will be put to the test as you encounter new topics and approaches to the study of film and television.
