The interdisciplinary concentration in Film and Video Studies seeks to provide students with the skills and knowledge to become discriminating receivers of cinematic and tele-visual texts and, as a result, more fully engaged citizens in our high-tech, media-driven society. Students who elect this concentration will learn about film and video as arts of interdisciplinary collaboration, which combine writing, photography, editing, acting, sound design, and production design.
