"Many of us at the university had used film in a variety of courses for quite a long time. The film studies minor began in 2013 in response to students' interest in studying film as an art form and medium of communication that is deeply embedded in contemporary culture. The program emphasizes the history of the cinema and its relation to the various cultures it represents, and includes courses from a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives. The film studies minor is an exciting complement to any major."
