Students who entered Lawrence University in 2015 or earlier may complete an Interdisciplinary Area (IA) in Film Studies.

Completion of the IA consists of:

  1. Five courses selected from the film studies course list. FIST 100: Introduction to Film Studies, or its equivalent (FREN 302, GER 277/378, SPAN 330), is required.
  2. Submission of the requirements checklist.
  3. A 2-3 page statement of how the courses completed comprise a coherent course of study. The statement should include a discussion of:
    a. how the courses you’ve taken fit  together;
    b. what you have learned in film studies and how it enhances what you have learned in your major(s) and minor(s);
    c. what has changed about the way you watch and think about film, television and other visual media.

All materials are to be submitted to the director of film studies, Amy Ongiri, during the 7th week of the term in which the student expects to graduate.
