Administered by the Film Studies Program in the Department of Performance Studies, the Graduate Certificate in Film and Media Studies offers masters and doctoral students an interdisciplinary concentration in the study of film and other visual- and sound-based media that will enhance students’ major field of study. By combining film courses in such diverse areas as Communication, English, History, European and Classical Languages, Hispanic Studies, Performance Studies, Philosophy, and Visualization, students can create a program of study that will enrich their understandings of the global and interdisciplinary dimensions of the media culture environment. The graduate certificate is open to any Texas A&M University student.
