Admissions

Applicants will submit an application to the Film Studies and Media PhD program, identifying an Area of Concentration from the list of associated departments (e.g. English, French, Hispanic, History of Art and Architecture, and Slavic). The name of the Associated Department will appear on the student’s transcript when the degree is granted. The application will be vetted simultaneously by Film and Media Studies and the Associated Department. Only one application fee is required.

Students who have already entered graduate programs in associated departments are welcome to apply to the Film Studies and Media PhD through the normal application process. If accepted, they are eligible to transfer a maximum of 24 credits towards the Film Studies and Media PhD degree requirements, and can petition to waive required courses that have been fulfilled, following normal University, School, and Program regulations.

Students who wish to enroll in the graduate certificate programs in Film and Media Studies (whether MA or PhD) must be matriculated for a graduate degree in a department of the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences or in another school within the University. Students interested in pursuing a film studies certificate at any point in their career may do so by filing the appropriate form with the program director of the Film and Media Studies Program.

Financial Assistance

Financial assistance for both the PhD and the certificates will be provided by the associated department (reflecting the student’s Area of Concentration). Such aid typically takes the form of scholarships, fellowships, teaching assistantships, and/or graduate student assistantships.
