Oklahoma State University (OSU Screen Studies Program)

As one of six programs within the OSU English Department, the Screen Studies Program incorporates film studies, television studies, and studies in new media. Classes examine both American and international productions and contexts, and focus on the history, theory and aesthetics of screen-based representations, as well as their cultural and political impact. The program also offers screenwriting courses at the undergraduate level.

The Screen Studies Program is notable for its flexibility, encouraging students, for example, to combine work in the history of film with the study of popular culture, or to combine various aspects of screen studies with literary research and critical theory. Undergraduate students may elect the Film Option as part of their Bachelor's degree in English, while graduate students may pursue both the Master's degree and the Ph.D. in English with emphasis in Screen Studies.

Graduate students plan their own programs with their advisory committees and connect with programs in language and literature, critical theory, and American studies. Faculty and graduate students teach courses in the popular undergraduate Screen Studies track. They also help present the exciterbulb film series, with monthly screenings in Stillwater during Fall and Spring semesters.

Teaching assistantships and other forms of support (including tuition waivers) are available to graduate students in the English Department; they are awarded on a competitive basis.

The English Department continues to build its video library and is always acquiring new state-of-the-art technical equipment. In Summer of 2003, the program added a second multimedia screening room in historic Morrill Hall for the use of English Department faculty. Four additional media-equipped rooms are currently under construction.
