Cinema Studies Student Opportunities

Co-Curricular Activities

Integrated Media Corps

Integrated Media Corps is an on-campus internship experience with the Office of University Communications. Students have the opportunity to gain a wide range of communications, public relations and multimedia skills, including shooting, editing and posting video projects.

Film Society

Developed in conjunction with the Student Senate, Film Society is an opportunity to provide intellectual context for the campus film screenings.


The Experience at Comic-Con gives students the opportunity to conduct ethnographic research to study the pop culture and fan culture of Comic-Con International. Students travel to San Diego for an experience that uniquely pairs education and fun.

Film Literacy in the Curriculum

FLIC (CINE 270) units accompany selected courses in several disciplines, presenting students with the opportunity to do additional research in Cinema Studies and earn credit for that work.

Students work with faculty members from the Cinema Studies minor to design and complete a project that expands on a course topic. Students, the Cinema Studies faculty, and the faculty member of the course work together to design the FLIC experience.

Summer Screenwriting Institute

The Summer Screenwriting Institute combines workshopping with instruction by professional screenwriters and producers with a shared emphasis on story from concept to images. Past workshops have focused on the development of an hour-long drama script, documentary filmmaking, and internet TV pilots, and have included the talents of professionals such as Lauren Schmidt Hissrich '00, who has written for such acclaimed television programs as The West Wing, Private Practice, Parenthood and Do No Harm.
