- Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Cinema studies is a diverse and integrated program of study. You learn by making film and you make films to understand the process, techniques, genres, and significance of film in society. You will view and examine a range of film genres—documentaries, animation, musicals, and foreign films, as well as the role of cinema in society, and its relationship to other such art forms as music, painting, literature, and dance.
