Why Choose the Film Studies Minor? - Program Spotlight

Film is one of the most important art forms and entertainment forms in U.S. culture. The production and distribution of images in film and television parallels many areas of study in areas like Marketing, Business, Printing Technology and Visual Communication. Furthermore, the interpretation and analysis required in Film Studies compliment the study of Literature and Communication and involve theories relevant to Psychology and Sociology. This is why Film Studies would be a good compliment to many programs.
