Screen Studies Minor

Dr. Chris Cagle, Associate Professor

The Film and Media Arts Minor in Screen Studies provides students the opportunity to sample the aesthetics, history, and cultural significance of moving-image media. It draws upon the fields of cinema studies and humanities-based disciplines of media studies and media arts theory, while also encouraging students to approach screen cultures from neighboring disciplines, such as cultural studies, area studies, art history, or visual studies.

The Minor in Screen Studies requires a minimum of 19 credits.
