About this Program

The Cinema Studies Program at MCTC covers narrative, documentary, and experimental cinema. The courses explore cinema from all over the world and across time periods. Through these genres, students will explore three areas of film study: film art and analysis of film images; film history and its social contexts; and an overview of the major theoretical and critical approaches to the study of film, including concepts of genre, auteur, psychoanalysis and technology. MCTC has an articulation agreement with Augsburg College. Cinema Studies courses are not available for auditing.
