Although the Film Studies major was started only two years ago, already BC has set itself apart from the other schools in the area by its commitment to maintain itself on the cutting edge of technology.

However, its not just the equipment that makes our program better, it's the people. Boston College's commitment to hiring people that can teach what they do, has been key to graduating students from its ranks that know what they're talking about as well as know what they're doing.
