We offer an interdisciplinary program in Film and Media Studies at the College of William & Mary, dedicated to exploring the significance of film and media in representing and shaping cultures, societies, histories, and collective and personal identities. 


Our core courses will challenge you to think critically, creatively, and globally about how media works as an aesthetic and cultural practice. Our production classes get you "inside" video production.
