Program of Study
The Film Studies minor offers a unique interdisciplinary approach to the cinema. Through film analysis courses and screenings, students examine the history, theory, genres, art, and business elements of film. Digital media courses expand upon this foundation by combining analysis, theory, and the presentation of creative texts through digital media such as e-readers and social networking websites. Finally, through digital filmmaking courses, students experience the actual workings of the filmmaking process, from writing scripts with professional screenwriting software, to the mechanics of transferring those words to the screen, and editing images and sound into a compelling and functional storyline.
