Through this interdisciplinary minor, drawing courses from English, art, modern languages and theater, students will obtain a strong foundation in communication, visual language, film analysis and film production. Film minors will learn to ethically produce and consume such texts in their professional, scholarly, and personal lives, with special attention to the ways in which stories have the potential to represent multiple perspectives and to effect social change.
