Cinema Studies Pathway
Facilitators: Ron Hansen, English, and Michael Whalen, Communication
Courses in this Pathway will help students engage in the critical study of film and television history, theory, aesthetics, and production. Students will engage in the interdisciplinary study of national cinemas, international film movements, major and minor filmmakers in various traditions, film and media theory, the economic, legal, and political forces governing the film and television industries, and the relationship between film, television, the arts and culture. Students in this pathway may be asked to analyze and reflect on films or television shows already created or create new films or videos as part of this inquiry. Students may also be asked to compare film and television to other art forms such as novels or plays.
A main goal of the Cinema Studies Pathway is to deepen the knowledge and understanding of how cinema shapes, and is shaped, by the culture it exists in and emerge not only knowledgeable about cinema and television, but also enriched by contact with history, literature, foreign cultures, philosophy, and theology.
