Current English film track major Travis Smith will be entering the master’s degree program in Film Studies at the University of Buffalo fall 2015. While at IUP, Travis has enjoyed many film studies courses, including History on Film; Gender and Sexuality in Film and Literature; and The Great War in Film and Literature. He has also done most of the scheduling for the English Undergraduate Film Series.
This background of scholarship and activity has helped him progress.
Of his new program, Travis says, "There are many reasons that I decided to apply to and eventually accept an invitation to graduate school at SUNY Buffalo. I want to eventually become a film professor or film critic. Such classes as Global Media and Culture: Theories of Montage and Representation and a supervised teaching course will allow me to gain a better understanding of film, and allow me to be more comfortable in a teaching situation. I am excited to jump in to a new program and learn."
