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.
The complete up-to-date list of requirement for the ICS minor can be found in the university catalog. For additional questions including information about how to sign up for the minor, contact program coordinator, Prof. Doug Weatherford (firstname.lastname@example.org).
