Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Arts
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Film/Cinema Studies
Description The M.A. in Film Studies offers a diverse program of studies leading to an M.A. degree with thesis. The program focuses on the study of moving images as a major way of thinking about how we approach reality. In this context, it is essential to analyze film forms, theories, aesthetics, receptions, and policies and to thoroughly understand cinema in relation to history and culture. Our mission is to educate students in the diversity of cinematic practices, and in their historical and contemporary formats. We provide a supportive environment in which students immerse themselves in profound discussions of the role that moving pictures play in various societies, and how they mediate our perceptions of the world. The M.A. in Film Studies publishes Canada's leading graduate film journal, Cinephile, run and edited by students in the program. UBC Vancouver is a remarkable place to study film. In addition to the resources of the university, we benefit from the fact that the Vancouver region has the largest film industry activity in Canada, popularly known as "Hollywood North". The city also hosts several high-profile festivals and dedicated institutions that program independent international and Canadian cinema.
