Cinema and Media Studies at York University offers students a comprehensive and rigorous immersion in the study of the moving image in all its forms, both historical and contemporary. Building on York’s longstanding commitment to deliver innovative and interdisciplinary post-graduate training, the program offers a curriculum that encourages rich and dynamic synergies between creative and scholarly research with a unique focus on social justice, diversity, equity, and sustainability. 

Our faculty <http://film.gradstudies.yorku.ca/faculty/> make outstanding contributions in the areas of film theory, film history, emerging screen technologies and digital media theory, global media industries, documentary, experimental and avant-garde film and media, affect studies, post-colonial studies, urban media studies, environmental media studies, labor studies, critical disability studies, feminist and queer media, film and education, media archive studies, national and transnational cinema, political economy, and research creation/arts-based methodologies. 

Our students <http://film.gradstudies.yorku.ca/students/>, faculty, and large alumni network are part of Toronto’s lively and diverse film and media culture and its many opportunities for festival programming, curation, symposia, and lectures. The City of Toronto <https://www.toronto.ca/business-economy/industry-sector-support/film/>, housing Canada’s most important media industry infrastructure, provides students with exceptional opportunities for field placements, access to film screenings, museums and galleries, festivals (over 100 film festivals occur each year, including the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), Hot Docs, and Images Festival), and resources like the Ontario Archives (now housed on York University campus), TIFF’s Film Reference Library, and other unique research collections. 

We welcome applicants with educational backgrounds in Cinema/Film Studies, Media Studies, Communications, Cultural Studies, Digital Media, Art History, English, Women’s Studies, Queer and Sexuality Studies, Comparative Literature, Philosophy, Urban Studies, and other disciplines that nurture research in sound and moving image media. 
The MA <http://film.gradstudies.yorku.ca/ma-cinema-studies/> is a rigorous two-year (5-term) funded program involving course work and the completion of a Major Research Paper or a Research-Creation Project. A combined MBA/MA <http://film.gradstudies.yorku.ca/mba-joint-degree/> in Arts and Business Administration <http://schulich.yorku.ca/client/schulich/Schulich_LP4W_LND_WebStation.nsf/page/study-options-artm?OpenDocument> is also offered with the Schulich School of Business. 

Teaching, publication, and professional academic development are key components of the PhD <http://film.gradstudies.yorku.ca/phd-cinema-studies/>, a minimum four-year degree with guaranteed funding for five years. After completing course work and comprehensive exams, students complete a research dissertation or research creation dissertation that makes a decisive intervention in the discipline. In addition to generous professional development funds, our students receive national, provincial and university-wide scholarships and awards. Current PhD students include 2 Vanier <http://gradstudies.yorku.ca/current-students/student-finances/funding-awards/vcgs/> scholars, 2 Elia <http://gradstudies.yorku.ca/current-students/student-finances/funding-awards/donor-awards/elia-scholars/> scholars, 2 Trillium <http://gradstudies.yorku.ca/current-students/student-finances/funding-awards/ots/> scholars, and numerous SSHRC and OGS doctoral awards.

Each year the program selects a small group of exceptional students to join its vigorous and stimulating intellectual community, where students attend small and engaging seminars and receive close attention from faculty supervisors.  Our MA and PhD programs provide specialized training for careers in academic, research and government organizations, arts and entertainment industries (television, film, new media), festivals, producing, programming and curation, teaching, critical writing and publishing, publicity, and much more.

Students interested in the MA and PhD programs are encouraged to contact Prof. Sharon Hayashi, Graduate Program Director, hayashi at yorku.ca <mailto:hayashi at yorku.ca>.
