About

The English major at Samford University with a concentration in Film Studies combines a foundation in the study of English literature with a strong film studies component.

Overview

About the program

While studying a fundamental literary subject such as Shakespeare, students will learn about the history of cinema and the contributions of influential auteurs, as well as the complex dynamics between film and literature. 

Students will also have the opportunity to perform in-depth studies of important genres and pivotal movements or nationalities. The Film Studies program is offered at Samford University.

The study of film necessarily includes reading films critically, researching current scholarship, and writing original arguments. In the spring semester of their senior year, students will demonstrate their knowledge by writing a thesis that features film exclusively or combines film and literature.
