Film Studies Requirements

  • The Film Studies minor is designed to help students achieve a critical and historical understanding of cinema, an art form of growing importance in a media-dependent world.

The program encourages students to engage in analysis and critique of a range of films, both classic and contemporary, from Hollywood, other national cinemas, and independent filmmakers.
