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.

Internships: Film Studies majors and minors are strongly encouraged to undertake for-credit internships and to take full advantage of the many opportunities to work on local film productions. Currently Film Studies is building a portfolio of media companies and festivals, including the Seattle International Film Festival, that actively invite our internship applications.
Student Film Exhibitions: Film
Studies majors will have opportunities to showcase their own short
films and works-in-progress that emerge from film production courses
and as departmental honors projects.
Building a Portfolio: Your
portfolio includes a broad academic record in rigorous film study,
internship reports and evaluations, support letters from faculty and
mentors in the film community, a DVD of narrative, documentary and
commercial short digital films, details of work experience on local
film productions and with film festivals and media companies, and a
resume that directs the portfolio content toward an achievable future.
That future may include graduate study in film and media studies, but
also digital photography, design, and journalism, gaming, and indeed
any academic, professional and technological field that focuses on
The Film Arts Series: Noted film-makers, writers, and film scholars, regional and national, give lectures and presentations on campus at least once each quarter. The series has hosted a wide range of important film directors and film writers, including Tom Skerritt, Tom Wright (New Jack City), Chris McQuarrie (Academy Award for The Usual Suspects), and Stewart Stern (Rebel Without a Cause).
Film Showings and Film Festivals: The Film Studies program is working to establish Seattle University as a venue for new films and, most importantly, film festivals in cooperation with Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) and other Seattle and regional film institutes and organizations.
