The Film Studies minor, which is offered by the Communications Department, is an 18 credit minor offering students the opportunity to examine the artistic, literary, historical, technological, and sociological aspects of the motion picture. The program is designed around a core of classes in film studies which are augmented by studies in related disciplines.
Courses taken for completion of the Film Studies minor cannot be counted toward completion of the major requirements in Communication. In cases where both the minor and the major require the same course (e.g. COM 2050 - Introduction to Film Studies), any additional course listed in the Film Studies elective courses can be used to satisfy the 18 credit minor requirement (no substitution forms need be completed). Decisions regarding alternate or additional substitutions and all independent studies will be made by the program coordinator.
