Film & Media Studies, Minor
The film and media studies program at Saint Louis University is a 22-credit interdisciplinary minor developed by film scholars, practitioners and historians from various College of Arts and Sciences departments.
Film and media studies offers students the opportunity to explore cinema from a wide array of perspectives, as evidenced by its affiliation with African American studies; American studies; communication; English; fine and performing arts; history, and languages, literatures and cultures. It also cross-lists courses with philosophy, political science, theology, and women’s and gender studies.
The program is designed for students interested in film history, analysis, and production opportunities. In touch with today’s multicultural, multi-mediated environment, SLU's film and media studies minor encourages broad visual literacy and connects these analytical skills with the expertise of various disciplines. The program also promotes study abroad, particularly at Saint Louis University's campus in Madrid, Spain.
