- Check out every movie as soon as it comes out?
- Consider critiquing every film you see a personal hobby?
- Think of yourself as a film connoisseur?
- Know the stylistic elements of film noir, both classic and contemporary?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then a B. A. in Film Studies from Chapman University’s Dodge College of Film and Media Arts might be right for you.
At Dodge College, you’ll explore film history, theory and criticism in depth while acquiring a hands-on introduction to production, including cinematography, lighting, editing, and sound design. This unique combination of theoretical knowledge and filmmaking practice will give you a distinctive understanding of how the essential elements of film work together, something that studying theory alone simply can’t do.
