Film Studies is a 60-credit program in liberal arts with a concentration in cinema studies and film production. Beyond the requirements for the Associate’s Degree program, it allows students to take up to 30 credits in cinema studies and/or film production coursework. Students take 9 credits of required cinema studies courses (Introduction to Cinema Studies plus 6 credits of electives), plus an additional 21 credits of either cinema studies or film production, including workshops. Prerequisites for higher-level courses must be met before those courses can be taken. The program is designed so that it can be completed in four semesters of full-time coursework.
In addition to the General Education requirements and restrictions specified above, an Associate of Arts degree with a concentration in film studies requires:
CIN100 – Introduction to Cinema Studies
6 credits of Cinema Studies electives
21 additional credits in either Cinema Studies or Film Production coursework
Total credits of cinema studies and film production coursework for the Associates of Arts Degree in Film Studies may not exceed 30 credits.
