International Cinema Studies Minor

The minor in International Cinema Studies is for students who love visual media and want to develop skills in critical analysis, writing, and interpretation along with knowledge about cinema theory, history, and diverse cultures. The ICS minor is a great addition to a major in the Humanities for a media-oriented student as it allows for a deeper focus on cinema, media studies, and international contexts than most majors are able to support. It is also a great addition for majors from outside the college of Humanities who need their cinema fix and something to help them round out their education with course work that will make them better communicators, writers, and thinkers.

Travel the World with IC Streaming
Image is not available

While we are all grounded, for the time being, we can still travel the world this year by viewing some of the best in international film!  Each week this semester, IC will offer several feature films and documentaries online through our Hummedia collection.

Our collection on Hummedia will be available to current faculty, students, and staff with a BYU Net ID. Each user will need to sign up individually to gain access to this collection.

BYU International Cinema, sponsored by the BYU College of Humanities, is one of the longest-running university foreign film programs of its kind in the United States.
