The Film Studies Program
The minor in Film Studies provides interested students a coherent education in this major art form, one that-along with television-is perhaps the predominant way that World cultures represent themselves. Film has become an increasingly significant and popular part of the humanities curriculum at the College; a number of disciplines-Modern Languages and Literatures, American Studies, English, and Literary and Cultural Studies-regularly offer courses about film or use films to increase understanding of other art forms. The Film Studies minor provides students the opportunity to organize these disciplinary and interdisciplinary courses into a meaningful curriculum.
Students may also use the minor as a basis for a major in Literary and Cultural Studies focusing on film (see Literary and Cultural Studies ).
Students wishing to pursue a minor in Film Studies should meet with a member of the Advisory Committee as early as is possible, normally during their sophomore year.
More information is available at the Film Studies Program website: www.wm.edu/as/filmstudies.
Beginning Fall 2014, the major and minor in Film Studies will no longer be offered; in their place, there will be a new major and minor in Film and Media Studies.
