The Film and Video minor provides a critical focus for interdisciplinary studies of core cultural issues, including those addressing the diversity of modes of conceptualization, social identity, questions on the cultural implications of technology, aesthetic development, and conceptualization of history, among others. The minor draws courses from several departments, including Art, Communication and Journalism, English, History, Modern Language and Classics, New Media, Political Science, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. 

Students in the minor will have options of pursuing intersecting paths addressing history, theory, and practice, so that they could best focus the minor to their major and other studies. The minor requires a minimum of 18 credits, as follows: 

Introductory course (total of 3 credits, these courses also count for 3 credits of the History and Theory requirement)

Two or more History and Theory (minimum of 6 credits, including any one of the four History and Theory Introductory courses)

Two or more Practice courses (minimum of 6 credits)
