Overview

Learning outcomes

Designed to teach critical and creative skills, this unique World Cinema major at Clemson University will train you to comprehend, challenge and participate in the global screen culture through a blend of conceptual and practical curriculum. You may customize your course of study in order to focus on analytical research or develop a creative project to learn the basics of digital media production. You’ll also have an opportunity to participate in a study-abroad film production segment or a local internship program.

What's more, you are required to take four semesters of a foreign language, which will equip you with a unique advantage to conduct cross-cultural research and engage with cultures other than your own. Although not the focus of your studies, you'll receive training in a range of production areas that will provide you with the basic skills to either directly enter the industry or join a media production apprenticeship. A diverse, multi-disciplinary faculty pool will challenge you to step outside of the box and behind the camera.
