The Film & Media Studies Minor provides the opportunity for the study of film history, criticism, analysis, theory, and the cinematographic elements and techniques that transpose human experience from diverse cultures on to the screen. It exposes students to a range of cinematic works, styles, and movements in order to enlarge their awareness of the medium’s significance as an art form, as a technology, and as a means of cultural and political expression. The minor consists of required courses and practica combined with upper-division elective courses from a range of disciplines that introduce students to the practice and critical study of film and screen cultures.
