The first two years focus on survey courses, which introduce students to a broad knowledge of film history and theory. The upper level courses specialize in a range of topics. Students can take courses in such areas as the role of film in society, gender and sexuality studies, national cinemas (for example Asian studies) , digital film and new media, television studies, Canadian cinema, film history, experimental and alternative cinemas, documentary, contemporary theory and more. You will also take courses outside of the Cinema and Media Arts Department, drawn from the rich offerings of the School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design (visual arts, theatre, music, design, digital media, dance) and the University at large.
