The Film Studies Program at the University of Pittsburgh offers a series of interdisciplinary courses concerning the history, aesthetics, theory, and production of cinema. The program provides courses in critical studies and, by special arrangement with Pittsburgh Filmmakers (near the Pitt campus), courses in film, video, and photography production.

In addition to simply taking electives in film studies, Pitt students can choose to complete a film studies minor or major in the field. A minor allows the student to major in another area, but still take an organized and officially recognized sequence of film studies classes.

The major in film studies prepares students for graduate training in cinema or for such film-related careers as film arts administration, film journalism, film curatorial work, film library work, film distribution, teaching film, and film production.
