Cinema Studies Minor
The Cinema Studies Minor is an inter-disciplinary, multicultural program housed in the School of Communication and the Arts.
The Cinema Studies Minor emphasizes the critical study of cinema as an art form, a business, a technology, a form of entertainment, and a cultural product that both reflects and shapes culture. It brings knowledge and concerns from various disciplines--such as history, literature, or philosophy--to bear on the critical study of domestic and international cinemas.
This minor complements majors in fields such as communication, theater, art, digital media, literature, history, or psychology, and deepens students' critical thinking and analytical skills. The minor advances the Marist tradition of enhancing students' appreciation and respect for ideological, cultural, and artistic diversity.
The Cinema Studies Minor is one of three minors offered by the Media Arts Department within the B.A. in Media Studies and Production.
