The Cinema Studies minor offers students a multidimensional understanding of movies as forms of art, products of industry, and modes of communication. The program can serve as a base of knowledge for students intending to enter careers in the media, as a foundation for further study, and/or as the opportunity to gain deeper insight into one of the most culturally significant media of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
The minor consists of 15 credit hours of film or cinema studies CMS courses. In order to declare the minor students must have a minimum 2.0 G.P.A. and have completed the core competency in College Writing. A grade of “C” or higher is required on all coursework for the minor.
