Cinema Studies

As a study of moving images, the minor in Cinema Studies draws courses from art, communication, history, modern languages, music, English, theater, philosophy, and sociology, creating a richly complex interdisciplinary conversation on film and video. 

By focusing on the historical as well as the current and future uses of moving images, the Cinema Studies minor is not limited to the study of physical film but includes electronic and digital video. It also does not restrict the study to specific places of viewing.

Cinema Studies courses focus on the history, theory, culture, and criticism of film and video, in addition to encouraging hands-on experience in digital video production.
