Yale University (Summer Session) (Summer Film Institute)

Yale's Film Studies Program and Yale Summer Session will once again offer in 2007 a selection of outstanding courses by some of the university's most esteemed faculty members. Many of these classes are in such demand during the regular school year that only Film Studies majors have been able to gain admittance. Now they are open to all on a first come, first serve basis. Courses also take advantage of the summer format to provide students with intensive and focused experiences impossible to achieve during the regular school year.

Film Studies is an interdisciplinary program that focuses on the history, theory, and criticism of cinema and other moving image media. Undergraduates can major in Film Studies while graduate students can pursue a Film Studies Ph.D. in conjunction with another department. Courses examine cinema's role as a unique art form that now spans three centuries and the contributions of moving image media as practices of enduring cultural and social significance. The program draws on courses from a number of disciplines and departments including American Studies, Anthropology, Art, Comparative Literature, English, French, German, History, History of Art, Italian, Slavic, Sociology, and Theater Studies. As an interdisciplinary program, Film Studies offers students latitude in defining their course of study within the framework established by the Film Studies Committee. With this freedom comes the responsibility of devoting careful thought to planning a coherent and well-focused program. Because of the special demands of Film Studies and the diversity of its offerings, potential majors are encouraged to consult with the director of undergraduate studies early in their academic careers.
