Why Film Studies at Coe?

Film studies is an interdisciplinary major that spans 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 yearlong senior project, which can take the form of a video work or critical paper.

Recent Coe graduates have been accepted to highly competitive graduate film programs at NYU/Tisch School of the Arts, University of Chicago, Yale University and Chapman University.
