Students participating in LMU’s Film, Television, and Media Studies program will undertake an academically interdisciplinary experience that provides the opportunity to understand the many ways in which filmmakers have used the media as a means of personal expression as well as a tool for interpreting the world. Through Film and Television courses, students gain the tools that allow them to critically examine the ways in which their own perceptions have been shaped and influenced by various forms of media. The program provides the theoretical, historical, and cultural frameworks inherent to the understanding of film as a medium. In all FTVS classes, students explore the many ways that media texts reflect, shape, and question cultural values, attitudes, and beliefs, including but not limited to representations of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, and nationality. ‌
