W&J graduates have gone on to successful careers in film and television as actors, directors, producers, film editors and writers. Many of them are able to provide W&J students with useful internships that help prepare them for careers in these fields.
If you are interested in being a film director, editor or producer, you could major in a wide variety of fields at W&J including Art, Theatre, Communications and English. Psychology is a very useful field to understand if you are constructing a film. You can also mix a major and minor — for example, majoring in Art and minoring in Communications.
Whatever your major and minor, some courses that will prepare you well for this career path are:
Culture and the Media
Directing for the Stage
German Film (taught in English)
Sounds, Gestures and Objects: An Anthropological Perspective
The Psychology of Communicating
Sensation and Perception
