Cinema and Media Studies


I recently applied for Early Evaluation, and Wellesley is my definite first choice (simultaneously anxious and excited for February!) and I'd like to have a little more information regarding the Cinema and Media Studies major. Does anyone have any experience with it? Teachers, content, everything-wise? Are there significant internship opportunities like there are for more established majors? It seems that its a fairly new major, so there doesn't seem to be much general information about it. 

I know that you have to declare a 'track' and that, if admitted, I would most likely be going through the production track (am I correct in assuming that this would focus mainly on the development and creation of student films? I love film history as well, and I know that will be incorporated, but I'm more interested in learning the actual art) so any info pertaining to that specifically would be tons of help as well. 

Finally, I would ideally like to double major in Political Science and Cinema and Media Studies. I've read in various places that double majoring makes it pretty much impossible to study abroad, is this true?

Anyway, sorry for the novel! Thanks in advance for any help you can give!



My standard advice is not to double major, because nobody cares what you majored in, and there's no discernible difference between a Political Science and CAMS double major and a CAMS major with coursework in political science. Some people disagree, but I still maintain that for most career paths, nobody gives a rat's ass and you might as well not straitjacket yourself.

I turned my double major into a major + a very unrelated minor halfway through my junior year and it has really never mattered one bit.
