Bowling Green State University (BG SU Department of Theater and Film)

The mission of the Department of Theatre and Film at Bowling Green State University is to foster the scholar-artist-citizen through both practical and inquiry-based learning in the classroom and performance labs, on our stages, and out in the community. It is expected that faculty teaching and research and creative activity in theatre and film work together to enhance, support, and reflect this mission. We define the scholar-artist-citizen as a student who excels in the theory and practice of the core values.

The Film Major gives students a foundation in film history, aesthetics, production, and methods of analysis that illuminate global and cultural perspectives. Students who select the specialization in film production gain experience in all aspects of production and are prepared to begin careers as writers, producers, and directors. BGSU graduates have been accepted into prestigious MFA film programs and highly competitive professional programs such as those sponsored by the Director's Guild of America. Students who choose the specialization in film studies develop expertise in electronic publishing and in analyzing the film industry and individual films. They are prepared to begin careers in journalism, festival organization, film acquisition and distribution, and, with professional training, entertainment law. Film studies students have been accepted into graduate film studies programs and have launched successful electronic publications on film, media, and culture.

A strength of the Film program is its faculty, who bring years of research and experience to their teaching. The program also benefits from BGSU's long-standing leadership in the areas of performance studies, popular culture, and international cinemas. Its commitment to excellence is demonstrated by its significant collection of research materials in the Jerome Library and by its well-established, individually-curated International Film Series held each semester in the beautiful Gish Theater.

The Gish Film Theater and Gallery, named to commemorate the achievements of Ohio natives Dorothy and Lillian Gish in the history of American film, was dedicated at Bowling Green State University on June 11, 1976. The naming of the theatre coincided with the establishment of the film program. The Gish scholarship is awarded annually to an outstanding student in film.
