Format: Campus

Program Description:

The M.A. program in cinema studies highlights important developments and movements in filmmaking. Special attention is given to social, cultural and political backgrounds that have influenced cinema. Students become familiar with the language of cinema to support their understanding of various genres, alternative modes, and national and ethnic thematic motivations. The program is based in a diverse learning environment. In addition to courses dedicated to cinema history and theory, students may explore animation and film production, and take elective courses in literature and art history. Graduate seminar topics have included cinema of the Middle East, literary films, jungle movies, ethnographic cinema, Romanticism and others. The potential combination of an M.A. in cinema studies and an M.F.A. in film and television offers students an opportunity to gain a thorough understanding of cinema in its historical, cultural, technological and aesthetic specificity, while also putting that knowledge into practice.


The Savannah College of Art and Design is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
