Alumni from our Global Campuses

Webster University is an inspiring place to study the history and aesthetics involved in filmmaking today.

As Film Studies majors and minors, Webster students engage in courses that move from a general survey of the craft to in-depth studies of specific genres, filmmakers and theories. Upper-level courses focus on detailed analysis of film genres, filmmakers and international cinema. The Film Studies degree curriculum builds upon basic film production courses that can be a launching pad for careers in film writing, producing and directing.

As hosts of the Webster Film Series — a year-round program that prides itself as the most comprehensive alternative film series in the St. Louis region, Webster University is known for encouraging film artists to display their work within the community. The Webster Film Series offers a premiere film almost every weekend and frequently screens classic cinema on weeknights. Past visiting filmmakers include documentary filmmaker Ken Burns and writer/director John Waters.

Spotlight on Emerging Technology in Media Production

Webster University's state-of-the art virtual cinema system and newly renovated facilities housed at the School of Communications were recently featured on Channel 9 PBS's "Living St. Louis." The new facilities put Webster at the forefront of new media production methods, ensuring Webster's success into the next century of cinema creation.
