**************************************

In response to the disruptions caused by the global pandemic, graduate programs in the Humanities and Social Sciences in the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh are pausing admissions for fall 2021. This one-year intermission will enable us to devote our resources and attention to our continuing students. Graduate training and research are central to the mission of the Dietrich School and the Interdepartmental Graduate Program in Film and Media Studies. While we do not pause admissions lightly, in these uncertain times we are committed to optimally supporting our current students’ success and wellbeing.

If you seek to begin your graduate studies in the fall of 2021, we thank you for your understanding and wish you all the best in your endeavors. If you consider applying to our program for fall 2022, or have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Director of Graduate Studies, Prof. Mark Lynn Anderson or Program Director, Prof. Randall Halle.

The Film and Media Studies Program offers the following graduate degrees and certificates:

Certificates are available to all Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences (A&S) students in graduate MA or PhD degree programs. They address the needs of both the student who will focus on film studies (as in a dissertation) and the student who wishes training in film studies as a subspecialty.

The courses and research paper required for each certificate provide the student with a coherent curriculum in Film and Media Studies appropriate to the student's graduate level.

Film and Media Studies courses are offered by several departments. Choose “Film Studies” in the “School of Arts and Sciences” dropdown menu on the course descriptions page to view currently offered courses. Search courses.
