The film and media studies minor will consist of five courses as follows:
- FMST 200 - Introduction to Film and Media Studies and FMST 200L
Additional Courses (Four)
Four additional courses, at least one of which are at the 300-level or above. No more than two courses from a single department or program outside of FMST may be counted toward the minor.
Students are welcome to choose the four courses from any (and as many) of the following categories as they wish; students are, however, strongly encouraged to take at least one course from the Film and Media in a Global Context category, and at least one course from the Media Practice category.
Courses comprising the minor may be taken in any order; however, it is highly recommended that students take FMST 200 early in the program.
Students should be aware that certain courses have departmental prerequisites. It is the student's responsibility to fulfill these prerequisites, even if those courses themselves do not count toward the minor in film and media studies.
