Announcing a New Interdisciplinary Film Studies Minor Beginning Fall 2016

Our new Film Studies minor offers the opportunity to think analytically and critically about the forms of visual culture (especially film and television) that saturate our world. Courses offer a sustained and coherent examination of different genres of film, film from various national traditions, as well as recent television series that draw on the sophisticated visual and narrative strategies of cinema.
