“There is a place for films that challenge preconceptions …
for films that explore the meaning of being human in an important way.”
The Minor in Film Studies requires a minimum of 18 hours in approved courses. As an interdisciplinary minor, students may take courses from several departments and choose among offerings that focus on different aspects of film, from production to analysis and cultural studies.

- One course in International Cinema (e.g. FRN, ITL, HMN, EAL)
- 6 additional hours in elective courses
- Please consult with the Film Studies Program Director for the complete up-to-date list of approved courses
