The Film Studies major concentrates on cinema as an international social practice and shapes its study as a humanistic discipline mirroring the inherently interdisciplinary nature of film through teaching and research expertise in: Comparative Studies, English East Asian Languages and Literatures, French and Italian, Germanic Languages and Literatures, History of Art, Slavic and Eastern European Languages and Cultures, Spanish and Portuguese, and Women's Studies. Students complete core courses in basic film analysis, history, theory, pre-1950s, multicultural, and experimental traditions, develop a focus area in consultation with an advisor, and complete an intensive senior seminar. The Film Studies Program also oversees a minor, a graduate interdisciplinary specialization (GIS), and the publication of The Journal of Short Film. We also work with the Wexner Center Film/Video curators, who bring internationally renowned filmmakers, films, and premieres to Columbus!
