Movies are a part of everyone’s life, and film students at Centre study them as entertainment, as art, as societal artifact, and as a rapidly changing technology.

Students who pursue the film studies minor learn about the history and philosophy of film and can choose to explore topics like international film traditions, major film genres, and how film relates to other media and disciplines.

The minor focuses on the study of film rather than its production, though occasional classes in filmmaking are also available, and students can get involved in various broadcasting groups on campus. The minor provides a basic foundation for those considering graduate school in film or a career in production, and can enhance students’ studies in related areas like psychology, English, creative writing, drama, foreign languages, and history, among others.
