A Liberal Arts Education

The study of film at Hartford is based in the liberal arts.

In addition to their courses in the cinema major, students take a comprehensive range of courses for their general education in the arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences.

This provides a more well-rounded education for our students that enhances both their understanding of film and abilities as filmmakers.   Students incorporate ideas about topics such as culture, art, politics and sexuality from these courses into their analysis of film and their own films.
