The minor in Film & Digital Media offers a foundation in visual culture and contributes important scholarly techniques of value to other disciplines.
To declare the F&DM minor, students must complete FILM 20A and other F&DM lower-division course (FILM 20B, 20C or 20P).
Students earn a minor in Film & Digital Media by completing 8 courses: two lower-division courses as pre-requisites for the minor, and six upper-division courses, including four from the core curriculum of the general major (FILM 120 and one each of the 130s, 134s, and 136s) and two upper-division critical studies electives. There is no production component in the minor, nor is there a comprehensive requirement.
Declared F&DM minors are able to enroll in the core curriculum courses (FILM 120 and all of the courses in the 130s). The two upper-division courses are to be chosen from the following: Any two additional upper-division Film and Digital history/critical studies courses other than production studio courses that have not been used to satisfy the above core curriculum. One of the electives may be substituted from another department or institution. Course substitutions must be approved by the Film & Digital Media Department.
