Film and Screen Studies at Monash involves historical, textual and critical approaches to film and television.
We cover Australian, Asian and European national cinemas, earlier and contemporary popular Hollywood, alternative film and video, documentary film, Australian television, popular television genres and video practice.
Our school emphasises the variety of historical and critical modes of analysing film and television, and we encourage students to combine their film and television studies with other relevant and compatible units within the Faculty of Arts.
