Film Studies Minor

The Film Studies minor at Flagler College is an interdisciplinary course of study challenging students to engage the history, cultural impact, and social contexts of cinema from its birth in the late 19th century through the present day.

Combining courses across the Art & Design, Communication, English, Humanities, and Theatre Arts programs, the Film Studies minor teaches students how to analyze cinema from aesthetic, social, political, and historical perspectives, through written and oral forms of communication.

The minor also offers elective options in producing creative aspects of film. Film Studies provides students an opportunity for deepening skills of critical thinking and visual literacy applicable to a wide range of career paths. The Film Studies minor requires a minimum of 21 hours.
