As a budding film scholar, you will critically analyze the moving image in many forms, including documentary, Hollywood and national cinema, avant-garde and experimental film, and television. As a fledgling filmmaker, you will develop the technical expertise and authorial voice to write, shoot, and edit your own creative projects. The Connecticut College Film Studies major integrates film theory and practice. Watch the Film Studies Video.
On the Cutting Edge
As a major, you will develop moving picture literacy and become thoughtful and socially responsible producers. You will read books, articles, essays and blogs. You will analyze, interpret and construct both written and visual arguments – and your films will interrogate how images are constructed on the other side of the lens. When you graduate you will join alums who are award-winning writers, critics, cinematographers, producers, editors, directors, writers, documentarians, artists, advertisers, scholars, teachers, grad students and authors.
