Film Studies Overview

Film Studies at the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) provides an exciting avenue for students who are passionate about the silver screen. If you're a fan of cinema, Film Studies offer a diverse range of courses focusing on specific filmmakers, movements, genres, and eras. From studying documentaries to exploring dystopian narratives, students have the opportunity to engage critically with a variety of filmic themes. Delving into specific topics, such as the politics of the screen and the intricate relationship between literature and cinema, film studies encourages a nuanced understanding of the cinematic arts. With courses exploring critical topics in film studies, students enhance their analytical skills and develop a deeper appreciation for the complexities of visual storytelling. 

For those interested in a more formal approach to studying film, the Film Studies Minor not only broadens perspectives on the medium, but also prepares graduates for careers in the film and media industry, journalism, cultural criticism, or further studies in film and literature.
