A student may declare a Communications major with a concentration in Cinema. A student may also major in Fine Arts with a Cinema concentration.

A fine arts concentration in cinema gives students a solid foundation in the three primary disciplines within cinema studies: film history, film theory, and film production. This course of study examines cinema as a medium of artistic expression with a particular focus on developing critical skills centered within a Christian worldview and production skills developed within traditional artistic models. The program culminates in two senior-level courses where faith and the arts are studied and where the student produces a short film for exhibition at the Milligan College One Act and Film Festival. Along with a semester of study at the Los Angeles Film Studies program, the Cinema concentration will prepare students for application to a graduate film school (where one may earn either a PhD or MFA in cinema) and eventual employment as a professor of cinema or for work within the motion picture industry.

For further information on this major, refer to the information under the listing “Communications” or “Fine Arts.”
