Film and Television Studies
Here’s your chance to examine some of your favorite forms of popular culture from an academic standpoint through Fisher’s film and television studies minor.
This program takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of these visual media, incorporating history, theory, and practice. Courses in American studies, political science, English, and women and gender studies are offered as elective choices.
As a film and television studies minor, you may have the opportunity to apply to Syracuse University's L.A. (SULA) Semester. Participants work part-time as interns in various media companies while studying and living in the heart of California's entertainment industry.
The program curriculum focuses on the history of film and television, the craft of production, and film and video theory. By uniting these approaches, you come to recognize how visual texts produce meaning across social, cultural, technological, and historical contexts.
You will study past, current, and probable future masters of each form; discuss the merits of new and established approaches to visual material; and put your abilities to the test through production/screenwriting practices.
