Because Film Studies is an independent B.A. program, Film Studies majors and minors can also double-major or minor in English or English/Creative Writing, literary disciplines that importantly complement the visual storytelling discipline of film study.
With this extraordinarily comprehensive and visionary film studies program, Seattle University instantly places itself at the forefront of America’s top universities offering courses in the art, craft, and business of film-making.
