Mission Statement of Cinema Studies

Cinema Studies provides a framework for analyzing film and the screen arts as important cultural productions of the twenty-first century. In Cinema Studies courses, students approach movies as cultural texts and gain an understanding of the social, political, historical, and industrial contexts that produce cinema. The Cinema Studies minor and Integrated Studies emphasis broadens students' knowledge of how these texts shape and are shaped by culture. As an interdisciplinary program, Cinema Studies draws on faculty expertise from various disciplines and includes global and historical perspectives.
