The Film Studies Program at Boston College has arisen out of a need and desire to assist students in developing critical and technical skills in the area of film.

Video, photography, and television also play a supportive role in the development of these skills. As a part of the Film Studies Program, a student can pursue any of the electives dealing with the above aspects of communications.
