Cinema Studies Minor

Cinema Studies is a humanities program focused on the critical, historical, and theoretical study of motion pictures and related media, such as television and video games. Our courses offer a global approach to the field, exploring why and how motion pictures are made, how they circulate, and the ways in which they have shaped culture and society. Students also gain hands-on experience with production tools, allowing them to write not just about movies, but with movies. Cinema Studies students have gone on to careers in film and TV distribution and acquisition, festival and theater programming, entertainment journalism, teaching, museums and archives, and in the film industry as directors, screenwriters, or actors.
