Film and Media Studies

The Film and Media Studies degree combines a solid business education with behind-the-scenes technical skills, so you learn everything you need to run the show. We’ll teach you to produce compelling stories through a range of platforms, from podcasts to movie screens. First, you’ll explore cultural, social and political aspects of media. Then, you’ll get hands-on experience in production techniques, culminating in an internship or capstone project. Explore your interests in photography, video or sound design, and learn how to put your passion to work.

As a Film and Media Studies major, you will graduate with a broad knowledge of business by completing courses that are part of the Business Administration minor. You will also have the option of complementing your major with a Business Administration major, or any other approved Bentley major, by using some of your free electives to take additional courses.

Films, Franchises, and Fandom: Superheroes in Popular Culture (EMS 406)

In the last 15 years, Hollywood has produced an extensive catalog of films and television programs, particularly developed by the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that has fundamentally transformed prior notions of rigid representations of the superhero archetype. And as a lucrative and successful industry franchise that is dependent on fandom, it feeds from a desire produced by its ardent audiences to tell stories of enhanced heroes who are as equally flawed, fallible, and vulnerable as the rest of us but where perseverance, acceptance, and redemption shows itself to be obtainable.
