Film Studies at the University of Sydney
Research in the field of film studies has been available in the Faculty of Arts, mainly through the Department of Art History and Theory, since the 1980’s. However it was only in 2002 that a formal undergraduate program was created with the introduction of a film studies major. An Honours program was formalized in 2005 and the Master of Film Studies followed in 2007.
In recognition of the growing prominence of film in its program, the Department changed it name in January 2007 to the Department of Art History and Film Studies.
