UWM Film Studies Program

The UWM College of Letters and Science offers a unique major and minor in Film Studies. This interdisciplinary program is founded on a broad, international perspective on film, television, popular culture, and media forms, texts, and global industries. In addition to courses stressing cultural, historical, and theoretical approaches, students can take advantage of major festivals and symposia on campus and across the city. Film Studies provides students with critical and analytical writing skills that help them explore multiple perspectives on historical, international and contemporary media forms. The major promotes the study of film, television and digital media in their aesthetic, social, cultural, political, and technological contexts and expands students' understanding of media as essential elements of our global cultural environment. Film Studies students go on to graduate programs in the Humanities, the Arts, Law, and Education, and find careers in arts management, festival programming, advertising, graphic design, education, and more.
