Film and media have become major cultural forms in the 21 st century and their study is now an important part of a modern humanities education. The Film/Media Studies major teaches students to critically engage, understand and produce moving images. Courses challenge students to think historically, theoretically and analytically about a wide range of audiovisual media including cinema, radio, television and new media. The Film/Media Studies major also encourages students to apply their knowledge by producing creative work in media production courses. Film/Media Studies is partnered with Lewisburg’s Campus Theatre for classroom screenings and also uses the Marts Film/Media Production Studio for production classes.
