About the Film Studies Program

More than a century old, film is an integral, omnipresent art form and a component of our day-to-day lives. The film studies minor examines how film reflects and affects the social, intellectual, cultural, ethical, economic, aesthetic, and political aspects of our world; encourages students to move toward critical thinking about how film influences values and ideologies as well as our views on gender, race, class, sexuality, religion, and nationality; and demonstrates that film is a medium which both reflects and produces social conflicts, desires, and power relations.
