Program Description

The Minor in Film Studies provides a broad background in moving image media, art, and entertainment.  Along with courses in film analysis, history, and theory, professional training is also offered at various levels in story development and scriptwriting for film and television. The minor offers interdisciplinary coursework that serves as a credential for students interested in graduate study or in working in the educational, commercial, or entertainment industries, whether locally, nationally, or internationally.


Because all minors require fifteen hours, a fifth course will be selected from the student’s Area F requirements in consultation with the advisor for the minor.

Any three credit 3000/4000 level film-based course taught in any other discipline can be taken to satisfy the FILM 3105, FILM 3220, FILM 3230, FILM 3240, or FILM 3250 requirement for the minor. 

Although the minor does not require students to do so, FILM 3220, FILM 3230, FILM 3240, and FILM 3250 can be taken multiple times for credit provided the course content differs entirely from the previous offering. 

Program Total (15 Credit Hours)
