Film Studies at Michigan State University houses an innovative Bachelors of Arts in Film Studies, as well as a Minor in Film Studies, and two filmmaking Minors in Fiction Filmmaking and in Documentary Production. Our curriculum engages students in the history, theory, and production of world cinema. Classes examine cinema globally across a range of industrial and artisanal contexts, and encourage students to understand cinema as an art, business, and technology. Learning the craft of filmmaking as well as criticism, students develop the creative and critical skills necessary today in all areas of the creative arts. With this training, our graduates have gone on to a wide range 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.
