Film Studies

Film Studies

Film Studies at Michigan State University engage students in the history, theory, and production of world cinema. Our Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies examines cinema globally across a range of industrial and artisanal contexts, and encourages students to understand cinema as an art, business, and technology. Through our Minors in Fiction Filmmaking and Documentary Production, students can also develop the practical and critical skills necessary today in all areas of the creative arts. With this innovative training, our graduates have gone on to a wide range of careers that utilize and depend on the moving image: from film production, digital distribution, and film criticism, to arts management, educational programming, and public affairs work.
