Minor in Film Studies

Film is a vivid and pervasive visual registry of our times, and one of the most important sources of global, national, and local narratives in the world. The minor in Film Studies introduces students to the history and theory of film with a distinct liberal arts focus. The program provides students with a culturally diverse, international, and interdisciplinary grounding in film studies, as well as a basic grasp of traditional and innovative filmmaking techniques.
