Film & Media Studies Minor

The Film and Media Studies (FMS) minor offers students the opportunity to gain an in-depth knowledge of film and media through concentrated study in courses offered by the School of Literature, Media, and Communication (LMC). Students may supplement their minor with select courses from the School of History, Science, and Technology (HTS) and the School of Modern Languages (ML) as well.

The Film and Media Studies minor treats film and other modern media as premiere modes of creative expression in the modern era. As such, it focuses mainly on the rhetoric, history, theory, and cultural context of its subjects. While it is not aimed at developing skills in film or media production, those who are interested in attaining such skills may elect to take LMC’s courses in Video Production.


Students interested in the minor should consult with their own major advisor and with the academic advisor in LMC. 


The current faculty associated with Film and Media Studies minor are:

  • John Thornton
  • Qi Wang
