What types of film degrees can you study in the USA?

In countries such as the UK and Canada, it is common to study film as a stand alone degree, for example at bachelor’s, master’s or PhD level. However, in the US under a liberal arts education, you may study film as a major or minor meaning you need to dedicate a certain amount of credits to the subject.

Some programs will focus on a particular area of film such as film production or film criticism, which will have different amounts of practical and theoretical study and examination.
