The interdisciplinary Minor in Film Studies is designed to allow students to develop knowledge of film and video as an art form while fulfilling the requirements for one of the approved degree programs at the University. The College of Liberal Arts & Sciences courses that satisfy the minor represent different aspects of film and video art: (1) Culture, (2) History, (3) Theory, and (4) Production.
The Minor in Film Studies requires the completion of 18 hours of approved courses.
In addition, topics courses offered by American Studies and departments not presently associated with the Minor in Film Studies may be applied to the minor upon approval of the Director.
Students may elect as one of their courses an internship that focuses on a video or film project in any of the participating departments. Students who choose this option will sign up under the internship course number of the department that seems most appropriate. If no department designation is available, students will sign up for FILM 4410.
