This concentration trains students to work across genres of literary and cinematic representation, focusing on their common source in narrative representation.  Students complete the English Major Core requirements and then take courses in film analysis, film history, and film and literature, along with additional film and English electives. This is an ideal concentration for students who want to develop their skills in analyzing and writing about film, including screenwriting.
