New Minor On Film Studies


Do you love film? Do you love trying to figure out what films mean and what they say about us? If you do, then the Film Studies Minor is a great option for you! The multidisciplinary Film Studies Minor focuses on the artistic, narrative, socio-cultural, economic and theoretical aspects of film. That means that you'll be looking at how films are put together; you'll consider how they are artistic creations; you'll explore the meanings that they have; you'll examine them through different kinds of theoretical frameworks. In short, you'll be thinking about why films matter, which is highly relevant in today's digital world where visuals, movies, and clips abound.
