Film Studies Interdisciplinary Minor

Welcome to the Film Studies Program. Film Studies is an interdisciplinary minor that focuses on the history, theory, criticism of cinema. Special attention is also paid to the study of individual films as important and highly influential works of art, as complex and contested cultural artifacts, and as products of an ever-changing technology circulating within an increasingly globalized marketplace. The Film Studies minor is open to all College of Charleston students in any undergraduate degree program.

Film Studies combines the minor’s core courses offered by the Department of English with courses offered in a wide variety of disciplines within the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, the School of the Arts, and the School of Languages, Cultures, and World Affairs.
