The interdisciplinary Film Studies major will help you develop the knowledge and skills to become an adept analyst of film.

You will develop a thorough understanding of the evolution of film, a familiarity with the filmmaking process, and an appreciation for the cultural, political, economic, and aesthetic forces that shape film production. Approaching film from several academic perspectives, you will develop skills in critical thinking, analysis, writing, and communication that will help you prepare for careers in media, entertainment, the arts, public relations, and other fields, or for graduate training in film production.

Majors take film-related courses in at least four separate disciplines and can take courses such as screenwriting, Hispanic film and literature, video production, contemporary art.

Video Production?

Are you more interested in producing video or film? If so, you should look at OWU's Communication major, which offers a concentration in Media Production Studies. That program focuses on producing digital media, video, film, photography, and persuasive communication.
