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 and Film Studies take a minimum of 18 credits including: 

  • the foundation course, MF 101 Introduction to Media Studies (4 credits);
  • at least six credits from two clusters: Media and Culture and Applied Media;
  • two additional credits from either cluster;
  • three credits 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.
