Film Studies Minor

The Film Studies minor is designed to foster students’ understanding and appreciation of cinematic texts, industries, and audiences. Students pursuing the minor will think, speak, and write critically about visual media from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, enabling them to participate as thoughtful citizens in our increasingly globalized and mediated world. Students must take both an introductory film class and a film history class, with twelve additional credits of elective film courses. Students may not complete the minor by taking courses in only one department; to underscore the interdisciplinary nature of this minor, students must choose courses in at least two departments. Students need 18 credits to complete the minor.
