Undergraduate Models

Film & Media Studies

A student wishing to concentrate in Film and Media Studies (FMS) should normally take ENG2300: Film Analysis, five FMS courses numbered 3000 and above, and 5 courses either within or outside the FMS group. The FMS courses numbered 3000 and above must include three courses from Section One and at least two courses from Section Two. Since most FMS courses are 4 credit hours, the five required FMS courses would normally require majors to take a minimum of 35 credit hours of course work to earn an English BA in Film and Media Studies.

The English BA in Film and Media Studies, unlike the Interdisciplinary BA in Film and Media Studies, does not require its students to enroll in production courses. The English FMS student is also encouraged to take at least two of the required college electives in approved film-theatre courses offered in other departments and programs.

The following list of courses provides an English FMS model with a broad background in film history and theory, cultural studies, and video production.

SECT. I: History and Theory [3 courses]:
SECT. II: Cultural and Applied (Select 2):

The remaining 5 courses of FMS work may be selected from the Film and Media Studies list above or other English department course offerings. Students should consider approved courses offered by other departments and programs to fulfill college electives.
