Prospective Students

Visiting Wesleyan

Prospective students who are organizing a visit to Wesleyan and are interested in sitting in on a Film Studies class should ideally plan to be on campus between Monday and Thursday, as these are the days during which most Film Studies classes are held. We encourage prospective students to visit the introductory or intermediate level Film Studies classes, which best provide an overview of the subject and illustrate the approach of the department. (Enrollment is much larger in these classes than in upper-level seminars, however.)

If you plan on visiting a class with the Film Studies Department, please call the Film Studies Administrative Assistant, Lisa Mingione, at (860) 685-2220 to clear your visit with the professors due to various special film projects, exams, etc. If cleared, please arrive before the class begins and introduce yourself to the instructor. Film Studies classes can be quite long, as they typically include both a film screening and a lecture or discussion; if you can not stay for the entire class, please try to arrive at the beginning of class so as not to interrupt proceedings halfway through.

We are currently will not be offering in person visits or tours for the 2021-2022 school year. Please continue to check back later for more information. 

**We are excited to announce our live virtual tour for Fall 2021!**

The virtual tour of the Center of Film Studies will be offered on November 11th at 3pm EST and will be followed by a Q&A segment with Scott Higgins, Chair of the College of Film and the Moving Image and Professor of Film Studies!
