From a classic campus to the classroom...

The Film and Television Studies program is dedicated to producing critical media thinkers and producers who are capable of working and contributing to our increasingly diverse and technologically sophisticated society.


Welcome from the Director of the Film and Television Program

Whether you are interested in Film and Television Studies as a first or second major, a minor, or just want to take a course or two, our program has something for you! Check out our course offerings and our faculty directory to find out more. In addition to the academic program, student-run clubs, such as UVMtv and the UVM Film Club, offer vibrant extra-curricular options for engagement in producing media, screening films, and meeting students with similar interests. Many FTS majors also take advantage of internship opportunities, both locally and around the country to gain additional real-world experience.
Please feel free to be in touch directly with any questions.
