You’ll be introduced to audiovisual analysis and the language of cinematography, editing, sound, acting, and art direction—and study the history of the moving image from its beginnings to the present day.

Elective courses at the intermediate and advanced level provide opportunities to study specific genres, directors, and national cinemas. You'll also dive into interdisciplinary topics such as narration, narrative in fiction and film, feminist film practices and music and film.
