Learn how to deeply engage with, understand and produce moving images. Challenge yourself to think historically, theoretically, and analytically about a wide range of audiovisual media, including cinema, television, new media and radio. Apply your knowledge to creative work made in our production classes.

Take courses that range from "Film Noir" to "Montage to MTV," from "Audio-Vision" to "Practicum: Animation."

Watch films at the Campus Theatre, a 1941 Art Deco movie house with 35mm film and state-of-the-art digital cinema capability. At Bucknell, you'll research moving image media's past, travel to film conferences and festivals, and bring your own vision to life with professional-level production equipment and post-production facilities.

Graduate prepared for jobs in fields such as film production or film exhibition — or in areas as diverse as academia and marketing.
