|Description:||The MA in Film Studies examines film as an artistic, cultural, and political medium. The main objective of this program is to expose students to different methodologies of film and media analysis, in order to understand the role of moving images in society and history. The program encompasses aesthetics, theory, and research methods that will help enable students to navigate their own relationship to the complex and pervasive viewing experiences of our digital world. While exploring the latest developments in moving image culture, we encourage students to develop their own research projects. You will connect with a dynamic group of students and develop your own areas of interest and benefit from some of the best research labs in Canada.
Our internationally-renowned faculty is comprised of academics from a multitude of disciplines and institutions and includes four research chairs. Montreal's exceptional range of film venues, museums, galleries and artist-run centres means that students live and work in an incredibly vibrant and inspiring urban environment.
