Departmental Guidelines and Goals

The major in Cinema is designed for the serious student who is interested in both the history and development of film and video as art forms and the creative process of producing cinematic works. The goals of the major are to provide students with a working knowledge of the principles of production in connection with an understanding of cinema as an art form. In this regard, an understanding of cinema theory, analysis and history is essential.
