International Cinema (Certificate)

The power of international cinema lies in its ability to underscore national differences and engage diverse viewpoints.

The certificate program in international cinema provides undergraduates with the means to explore and understand the role that international film plays in highlighting cultural diversity, reflecting the sociocultural, political and economic currents of the period and cultural setting depicted, and calling into question an accepted idea of the dominance of Hollywood film.

Following an integrated pathway through the variety of international film courses, the certificate program explores facets of international film history and production not often covered by American programs in film studies. Students majoring in a second language can explore a particular culture's filmic heritage and traverse avenues for comparative analysis between the filmic heritage of two or more cultures. Students majoring in other areas can encounter visual narratives different from their own and connect international cinema to their own respective experiences.
