Laurier’s Film Studies program is considered one of the top film programs in Canada. The recent partnership with the Vancouver Film School, is providing students a pathway to combine academic study of film with hands-on training in film production, writing, or acting. You will complete the Honours BA in Film Studies at Laurier and receive a diploma from the Vancouver Film School in either Film Production, Acting for Film or Writing for Film and Television in just four years instead of five.
Our Film Studies program addresses the prominent role visual media plays in our experience of the world today. Our courses equip you with an understanding of the history of film, the key methods of critical analysis and film theory, the relationship of film style to its social and industrial contexts, and the variety of film genres and national cinemas.
With three wide-ranging introductory courses, you’ll have a choice of entry into the field of film studies in your first year. For upper-year students, we offer courses on film genres, theory, film history and national cinemas. Our range of courses makes Film Studies at Laurier an engaging, richly diverse program both in Canada and internationally.
The new Film Production Option is designed for students who seek to combine a foundational knowledge of Film Studies with a practical understanding of the techniques of video and film production, from script to screen.
