Film and International Cultures, Minor

The minor in Film and International Cultures allows students to study in a sustained and in-depth manner the rapidly expanding global visual culture. Students will explore the history, theory, aesthetics and criticism of film and other moving-image media on a global scale and in relation to culture, other arts, politics and propaganda. In this sense, our minor is a most valuable asset in a multi-disciplinary portfolio for anyone interested in how the image and the film/propaganda industry shape the world we live in and the ways in which we conceive of ourselves and others.

Complete all courses listed below unless otherwise indicated. Also complete any corequisite labs, recitations, clinicals, or tools courses where specified.
