Cinema Course Offerings


Program Components

Cinema Major
Departmental honors are awarded to students whose senior theses are judged by the faculty to be of superior quality. In addition, honors are awarded to those majors who have completed a substantive body of significant work in the department. Nominations for honors are submitted by individual faculty members, and the final decision rests with the entire Cinema Department faculty. Senior standing is required.

New Requirements for the major
The cinema major consists of six core courses and five electives. The core courses give students experience in the analysis of film and video and the creation of personal works in both media. A set of elective courses is chosen to reflect the student's dominant interests. Those who wish to stress filmmaking or videomaking should begin the major early enough in their academic careers to allow for the completion of the sequence of courses in those areas.

Residency requirement
A minimum of 6 courses in Cinema courses must be taken in Harpur College in order to qualify for the BA degree.

The department requires a grade of C or better in cinema courses counted toward the major. No courses for the major may be taken Pass/Fail.

Cinema Minor
The cinema minor consists of three core courses and three electives, for a total of 24 credit hours. Students should be advised that CINE 122 is a prerequisite to all studio courses and may be taken concurrently with CINE 252.

Note: Unless otherwise noted, all undergraduate courses carry four credits.
