Film Studies

Film Studies is an interdisciplinary major that weds film production, analysis and history with courses in many departments across campus, including Art, Creative Writing, Theatre and Music. Courses in film history and analysis complement a range of production offerings, including digital filmmaking, screenwriting, stop-motion animation and sound. The major culminates in a year-long senior project, which can take the form of a video work or critical paper.

Recent Coe graduates have been accepted in highly competitive graduate film programs at NYU/Tisch School of the Arts, NYU-L.A., the University of Chicago and Chapman University. Upon graduation, students can choose to further their training in a graduate school setting, or to pursue a career in writing, directing, cinematography, or editing. Film is a rapidly expanding field that requires an active, collaborative participation in the creative process. Lights, camera, action!
