Courses include film history, directors, genres, theory, and introductory and advanced instruction in film production.
The minor in Film Studies will require a minimum of 18 hours, with 15 hours of upper-division courses, including Introduction to Film and History of Film. Film courses appear in the course catalog under FILM.
