About this course
The Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema is committed to providing a comprehensive education in cinema history, theory, criticism, and aesthetics and to encourage the scholarly exploration of motion pictures as a form of art and a means of social communication. Students will complete a total of 36 credits, which may be pursued on either a full-time in 2 years or a part-time basis. Because the degree program will be housed in the same facility as the proposed M.F.A. in Cinema Arts (the Steiner Studios at the Brooklyn Navy Yard), students will be able to deepen their knowledge within the context of a larger community of filmmakers and cinema scholars. This program's interrelationship with the M.F.A. program will make it truly unique.
