The film studies major and minor are interdisciplinary programs with courses in English, art, broadcasting, philosophy, communication studies and music which focus directly or implicitly on the critical, historical, practical and theoretical disciplines of the cinema. In the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film, the emphasis is on practical film making, on actors and acting in films, the applications of digital media and digital arts in film editing, computer generated imaging and the history of technological innovation in film.

The research interests of the faculty can be grouped according to historical period, genre, methodology, and authorship.
