Question by blahh: What do you think of a Film Studies major?
I’m thinking of majoring in it.
I know it won’t really help me get a job but I plan on going to grad school anyway plus I’m also majoring in English.
I’ve heard some people say it’s nothing but a fluff major then others who say it’s one of the more difficult majors.
It seems pretty difficult to me. It’s split up with half the classes having to do with film history and aesthetics then the other half dealing with actual film production.
The production classes are what seem hard because it’s very in depth and demanding work, with some of the classes requiring up to 7 short films per class to be shot over the semester, and shooting a short film takes a lot longer than most people would think.
So what’s your opinion on the film studies major?
Respectable or laughable?
Answer by TheVintageBug
I haven’t done it, but I think it is respectable.
I actually plan on majoring in English and teach it, but I’d love to minor in Film Studies and teach that, too.
