The minor in film fosters literacy in film, video and other forms of media in today’s highly dynamic and globally charged media landscape. It provides students with a critical understanding of the numerous 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 purse 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.
