Program Director: Nina Martin
At Connecticut College we take film studies to be a vital area of intellectual inquiry, framed firmly within the traditions and goals of the liberal arts, valuable to a wide range of students, not merely vocational training for would-be media professionals.
Our goal is to cultivate a true moving picture literacy - to educate students in the language of moving images and its uses. Our method is to integrate theory with practice, combining film scholarship with creative work in film production.
We do not believe that either film scholarship or filmmaking should be conceived as narrow specializations. We see film studies as an inherently interdisciplinary endeavor and encourage you to combine your interests in film with other areas of inquiry available at the College.
