Film Studies Minor

English + Theatre + Communication and More

Study Across Disciplines

Learn about the production, distribution, exhibition, history and theory of film by declaring the interdisciplinary film studies minor at Truman. Select 15 credits from a variety of film courses ranging from the technical to the aesthetic. This minor pairs well with any major – for instance communication, English, foreign languages, history, philosophy & religion and political science.

Pursue Film Studies

You’ll learn to approach film from a range of aesthetic, anthropological, cultural, economic, political and social perspectives. Explore a variety of genres and approaches to film and practice analyzing films through in-class discussion, written and visual production assignments.

Discover New Connections

At Truman, we know that all fields of study are connected in complicated and fascinating ways. The Film Studies minor is one of the interdisciplinary studies programs available for you to explore the new possibilities that open up when two or more fields overlap. You can also pursue an interdisciplinary studies major that allows you to custom-design your own field of study.
