Media and Film Studies

Minor in Brief

Working closely with their advisors to select courses that form a meaningful and coherent curriculum, students in Media & Film Studies take a minimum of five courses (minimally 18 credits) including:

  • the foundation course, MF-101: “Introduction to Media Studies”
  • four courses from two clusters: “Media and Culture” and “Applied Media,” spread across  three of the four disciplinary divisions (Humanities, Visual and Performing Arts, Social Sciences, and Natural Sciences and Technology).  At least one of the courses will be at the 300 level.
  • a structured field experience that involves applied learning. Students usually fulfill this requirement through internships, independent studies, or a significant non-credit bearing experience in one of the media or film areas in the college.
