The film and television studies program offers students a minor that brings together history, practice, and theory. This interdisciplinary minor focuses on formal, cultural, and historical analyses of filmmaking and television and video production.
Students take courses that focus on the history of these media, teach the craft of production, and engage in questions of film and video theory. By uniting these approaches, the program helps students recognize how visual texts produce meaning across social, cultural, technological, and historical contexts.
