Film Studies

The Film Studies minor provides students with substantial interdisciplinary study of the history, aesthetics and cultural position of film. Students will acquire a critical vocabulary for analyzing films and a technical vocabulary for discussing the craft. They will also learn about the history of film and the development of its many genres. The interdisciplinary approach brings diverse cultural perspectives to the analysis of film and its roles in our culture. Although one of the required electives may involve a course related to film or dramatic production, the minor is not intended to provide a pre-professional introduction to making films.
