Film, Television & Digital Media (Minor)

Let’s get started

The Film, Television, and Digital Media minor is designed for students who wish to augment their major program of study with a series of courses that promote the study of film, television, and digital media as art forms with social, political, cultural, and economic significance. The minor consists of a choice of upper division courses that introduce students to the practice and critical study of film, television and digital media.

Successful completion of the FTVDM minor will be indicated on the transcript and diploma.
