Singer Donates $5 Million to USC Critical Studies

USC alum Bryan Singer, who’s currently working on X-Men: Days of Future Past, donated $5 million to the university’s School of Cinematic Arts, which has renamed the Critical Studies division in honor of his gift.

At a ceremony last Sunday, The Bryan Singer Division of Critical Studies was described as “the critical examination of mass media, popular culture, and the art, craft and industries of film, television, and interactive media,” particularly “their social, political, economic and aesthetic impact both at home and abroad.”

Singer, who received his BA in Critical Studie, announced that he would teach a course called Double Feature that would pair movies by the same direct. How fitting since the doppelganger theme is so prevalent in his work (from The Usual Suspects to the X-Men franchise).
