  1. Hi all! I searched the forum and I could not find a topic specific to Film & Media Studies and/or Cinema Studies. I named the thread with both titles for the sake of keyword search. As you all know programs adopt different names. Please use this space to discuss applications, decision anxiety, research and whatever else you see fit! I applied to these programs: UC Berkeley Yale NYU University of Washington, Seattle USC University of California, Santa Barbara I've only heard back from UCSB and unfortunately I was rejected. I'm holding out hope for the others. It only takes one school! What schools have you applied to?
  2. Hi all, Not a lot going on in terms of film studies discussion, and I know it's early, but I'm interested in sharing information before outcomes (so that hopefully those outcomes themselves will be better). I've been disheartened with university websites, which really don't give much sense of a program's culture or a department climate, nor do they always spell out funding package information or departmental theoretical approaches. Additionally, I don't know a lot about what all of these cities are like. I'm considering the following programs: University of Pittsburgh UC Berkeley University of Toronto Northwestern Wisconsin UCLA USC University of Washington UChicago Concordia Brown MCM If you are a current/former students of these programs/just happen to have engaged with them, I'd love to hear from you. Also: Does anyone know anything about the University of Oregon English with a Structured Emphasis in Film Studies program? / Eugene in general? Is this worth looking seriously at? Overall, I hope we can find a bit of a community here together to make applications less isolating than they already are!
  3. Hi all! I am in my last year of my undergraduate and am majoring in Film and Screen Studies (minoring in Critical Race and Ethnicity Studies and Urban Studies). Right now I am feeling pretty lost in searching for a masters program. I was interested in Columbia at first but have read that a lot of classes are undergrad and it is not very contemporary. I was wondering if anyone would like to share their experiences they have had in a similar program/if anyone has recommendations. A lot of film programs are MFA and production based whereas I am more interested in the studies/theory aspect of it. I had initially wanted to stay in the same location (NYC) but it seems that the only two options are Columbia and NYU (which both known for their lack of funding). I am open to anything and would love to hear your experiences!

  5. Wanted to start a thread for anyone who applied to an interdisciplinary or "combined" African American studies & Film/Media/Cinema studies program ...or are looking to minor in African American studies/incorporate African American history and culture into a Film/Media/Cinema studies PhD program.
  6. Hi everyone, I'm a current applicant struggling to choose my MA program and I'm here for some advice. I have a BA in art history in UK and I don't necessarily hate it. But the thing is, I really want to study cinema for my masters and it seems that art history in the U.S. usually offer no terminal MA (some do but rare) while cinema do. While undecided on if I'm going to continue study art history for a Ph.D, I wonder if anyone know people who entered an art history Ph.D with a focus or a major in cinema studies. i.e. someone not cut off by art history due to their nonconsecutive majors. And the key issue is, my GRE is not very impressive and it seems that art history MAs usually require a very decent grade. I've seen people and schools that integrate the two well but not sure if it's normal. Please write down any opinions you have and I'll deeply appreciate.
  7. Hi everyone, I've been very lucky and received acceptances from Tisch and Stanford (Art History) for a PhD in cinema studies. I am now very torn, main considerations: 1.The Tisch program is older and more established, but Stanford looks great, and is very upcoming as well. 2. The NYU supervisor is senior and quite well known, though multiple (albeit junior) advisers at Stanford might contribute to a more interdisciplinary research 3. NYU is a bigger department and people seem nice, Stanford though small also seems a welcoming and warm place. Hadn't expected to be so confused up until the last days for decision. Tried pro-con lists, talking to present students but seem to be going round in circles- they're both such great options. Any insights appreciated! Thank you all!
  8. Hi, I thought I'd start a conversation for those of us who are considering UT Austin for our PhDs this fall. I've been accepted into the film studies PhD and would love to hear from others grads who are thinking of moving there, stuff about the city, housing, funding, costs of living, the entire shebang. And if anyone else is thinking about joining the Department of Radio-Television-Film, would love to hear from you! Thanks!
  9. I could not find a recent post for all the students considering film/media/television studies on the MA level... so I thought I would start one! I have been searching for the past month for some of the less popular MA programs, and frankly I could use some help. Here is a list of some schools and programs I am considering: University of South Florida - Masters of Liberal Arts in Film Studies (Did my undergrad work here so this is more of a backup) Emory University - MA Film Studies University of Florida - MA Film Studies Indiana University, Bloomington - MA Film and Media Studies Georgia State University - MA Film Studies Savannah College of Art and Design - MA Film Studies Boston University - MA Film Studies University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee - MA Media Studies Anyone have new suggestions? I am trying to stay away from schools in California and New York and some of the big name schools like Brown and Northwestern. Appreciate the help!
  10. Hi! This is my first post on this site! I graduated with an honors BA in film studies (minored in gender studies) in May of 2010. I am currently looking at MFAs and PhDs for the 2012-2013 school year. Right now, I am struggling to decide whether or not I should only apply to MFAs, PhDs, or a mixture of the programs. In the end, I'd like to get a PhD, but I have a really strong interest in film production (which isn't offered in all PhD programs). I'll also only be 24 (if accepted) when I start graduate school and have concerns about being too young for both of the program types. Advice? Some of the programs I'm interested in are listed below in my signature (I know, I know...I need to think of some safety schools). If anyone has applied to or is currently going to these schools, I'd love to know more about their admission requirements. As well as there median GRE scores (for the schools that don't release that info), average age of accepted students, overall program and advisor feel, etc. Oh, and just for background, I went to a seven sisters school and was very involved in the film and radio community there. I graduated with an honors thesis on queer southern gothic film and fiction and a 3.43 GPA (I know...on the lower end for a lot of these programs). I make experimental films and am interested in bodiliness, the grotesque, the uncanny, witches, queer theory, masculinity in 1950s science-fiction, war cinema, genre cinema, early american literature, violence and incest in films and literature, women's cinema, queer cinema, the american avant-garde, feminist film theory, and second-wave feminism. (and that's just the beginning!) Thank you!
