What is cinema studies?
The interdisciplinary cinema studies minor provides students with an introduction to the history, theory, analysis and aesthetics of the moving image. The study of film extends to the analysis of video and television from varying perspectives, including genre, authorship, culture, ideology and style. Combine the minor in cinema studies with a major in English, journalism, history or theatre, or with disciplines across the university such as business, health sciences, engineering or economics. In combination with advanced studies at a film school, the minor could even be a first step in pursuing careers in teaching, screenwriting, network television, theatre and filmmaking.
