Program Description

The four-year Bachelor of Arts degree in Film and Media Studies is offered by Arizona State University’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. This is a dynamic and innovative program that involves the study and critical analysis of film, television and digital media.

Developing the analytical skills needed to interpret deeper meanings in popular culture takes time and exposure to topics such as cultural studies, social sciences, race and gender. Film history also plays an important role in this degree as it can clearly demonstrate how filmmaking trends directly correlate to what was happening in the world at the time a film was made.

This program places a strong emphasis on composition classes during the first year. SAT, ACT, Accuplacer, IELTS or TOEFL scores are used to determine placement in composition classes.

Media studies provide students with the skills needed to become critical scholars and practitioners of modern media culture, all of which can be used for careers in the film industry as producers, reviewers and analysts.

A minimum of 120 credit hours is required to complete this degree.
