Department of Communication Studies


Film Studies is concerned with exploring the narrative, artistic, cultural, economic, and political implications of the cinema. The United States’ film industry is second worldwide only to India and continues to grow, as does the study of film. A minor in Film Studies will enable students to develop media fluency in film –the ability to analyze, contextualize, and use the medium within the broad context of humanistic studies — while honing their critical thinking and writing skills.
