Film studies offers grad certificates

Pitt's film studies program is offering two new graduate certificates in film studies. One of the programs is at the master's level and the other at the doctoral level, according to Lucy Fisher, director of film studies.

Both certificate programs are open to all Faculty of Arts and Sciences students in graduate programs. The master's certificate program is for students who are interested in film studies as a subspecialty; the doctoral certificate is for students who want to concentrate in film studies.

The master's certificate is available to students registered in a master's program. They must take four film studies courses (12 credits) including film history/theory and three elective courses.

The doctoral certificate program is open to doctoral students and is awarded after the completion of requirements for the Ph.D.

Doctoral students must take six film studies courses (18 credits) including film history/theory and five elective courses.

Students in both the master's and doctoral certificate programs must write a research paper of 25 – 30 pages and submit it to a three-person review committee.

For more information, contact the film studies program, 526 Cathedral of Learning, 624-6564.
