Students watching a black and white film

Study the history, theory, and aesthetics of film in one of the first university departments devoted to studying the art form. Hone your critical voice and develop a trained eye and ear, and practice in-depth, careful analysis of moving images. Come examine cinema as a form of mass culture.
