Overview

Majors of the Film Studies program of Eckerd College learn how to make sense of films by making them, and learn how to make films by learning how to think critically about them. Through a wide range of courses and activities, offered by core faculty in Film Studies and faculty from multiple disciplines, students will gain an understanding of the history and theory of film as well as an appreciation of cinema as a medium for the expression of ideas and culture. The course of study culminates in the two-semester capstone sequence, during which seniors develop and present both a research paper that demonstrates their critical and analytical skills and a creative project that reflects their mastery of film production techniques.

Film Studies is an excellent field for those who wish to pursue careers in film, television, radio, online media, or other arts; who wish to pursue graduate studies in the humanities or the arts; or who wish to pursue other careers that require creativity, intelligence and adaptability, and the ability to think, write, and collaborate effectively about moving images and texts in general.
