The minor in film fosters literacy in film, video and other forms of media. It provides students with a critical understanding of the modes of film and media that shape their experiences of the world.

The film minor combines historical, theoretical, industrial and critical perspectives on film and media, through an in-depth familiarity with American and international film history, supplemented by an understanding of production practices.

The concentration on history, theory and criticism prepares students to pursue a degree in film studies, complements a major in digital media, enables students to critique media that shape our culture and gives students the opportunity to combine cinema studies with other areas of interest in major programs, such as English, history and psychology.
