An interdisciplinary department grounded in hands-on, immersive experience, the Harrington School’s Film/Media B.A. department provides student filmmakers with the educational and professional experiences necessary to succeed in a career in film and media production.
The film major also provides students with the opportunity to develop a unique, individualized, multidisciplinary curriculum comprising courses that serve their interests. Many of our students supplement their film studies work with courses in art, communication, journalism, English, theater, Africana Studies, gender and women’s studies, and languages.
Our graduates have worked on blockbuster Hollywood films, started their own production companies, become directors, producers, screenwriters, post-production specialists, film studies teachers and more.
The moving image is ruling communications right now. We’re teaching a technical skill that can be applied broadly. Our students are able to pick up a camera but they are also really great writers. We prepare students for the world ahead.Rebecca Romanow, Department Chair
