Film and Media Studies (FMS) is a department in the College of Arts and Sciences designed to give students a broad understanding of film and media history, theory, and criticism. The FMS curriculum is built around a core of Film and Media Studies courses and a rich variety of electives, including offerings in the Departments of Anthropology, African and African American Studies, English, Communication, History, and Modern Languages, as well as in the College of Journalism and Mass Communication and the College of Fine Arts. The comprehensive undergraduate degree provides students with the knowledge and skills required for careers in media-related fields, film production, academics, or other jobs in the liberal arts and humanities.
