I am thinking about applying to grad schools (again--I already have a MA, but in a different field), but my interests are a bit odd, and I am unsure where to apply. I am interested in film adaptations of literature, multi-lingual (multi-cultural) adaptations and cultural representations in film and literature. I have done a lot of work in languages and considered applying to language departments with film but am afraid of being too limited in what I could study. I have also been considering interdisciplinary programs, but the programs have such diverse names and are housed in diverse schools, and it's difficult to find them. So, I am here for suggestions. I know that this is a busy and difficult time for you, but if you have a moment to make some suggestions (or to procrastinate about your own decisions)... :D

Thank you!

hi, departments of comparative literature generally consists of minor degrees of film studies

...and for this reason I think getting in a complit department would be amazing

any who is interested in cinema and film studies should think about it

and I will... however it seems difficult due to an irervelant undergrad degree, Economics

anyway, still do not lose hope

The Ph.D. in Film Studies program at UC Berkeley is based in the Rhetoric/Speech Communications department, and you can do interdisciplinary research there with the Linguistics and/or English Departments there, you should contact some of the faculty there to see if your interests match theirs.

Also, Yale has a Ph.D. double major in Film and another field of your choice, which most likely would be Comparative Literature.
