Cinema is at the heart of a growing international, interdisciplinary interest in media studies.
A minor in Cinema will give students the critical vocabulary and perspective with which
to analyze motion pictures within larger artistic, cultural, historical, political, linguistic, and
global contexts, as well as provide a greater understanding of and hands-on experience with
cinema production, including screenwriting, acting, directing, producing, cinematography, and
editing. Because of the variety of cinema content, analysis, technology, and distribution a Cinema
minor would complement almost any major.

The Cinema minor is an interdisciplinary minor consisting of 18 credit hours,
including THEA 250, ENG 310, and 12 elective hours from the list of courses below.
The 12 elective hours must include 3 hours from the category of cinema production courses and
3 hours from the category of cinema studies courses. The same course may not satisfy requirements
for both the major and the minor. Students who complete relevant internships, study abroad
courses, or special topics courses will consult with the Cinema Director prior to enrollment in the
course for approval and to determine the appropriate category for the course.

NOTE: THEA 202 (Introduction to Cinema) may not be used as an elective class toward the Cinema Minor.
