Minor - Cinema Studies

Minor - Cinema Studies


A minor in cinema studies will give students the critical vocabulary and perspective with which to analyze motion pictures and related media within larger artistic, cultural, historical, political, linguistic, and global contexts. The minor also includes opportunities to take classes in certain aspects of pre-production and filmmaking—such as digital video and screenwriting—such that students can have hands-on experience with the medium they are studying. Because of the variety of cinema content, analysis, technology, and distribution, a cinema studies minor would complement almost any major.

Course Requirements

The cinema studies minor is an interdisciplinary minor consisting of 18 credit hours from the list of courses below. The same course may not satisfy requirements for both the major and the minor. Students who complete relevant internships, study abroad courses, or special topics courses will consult with the cinema studies director prior to enrollment in the course for approval and to determine the appropriate category for the course.
