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 at Rollins examines how film reflects and affects the social, intellectual, cultural, ethical, economic, aesthetic, and political aspects of our world.

You’ll learn to think critically about how film influences values and ideologies as well as views on gender, race, class, sexuality, religion, and nationality.
