Assistant Professor: Kenny Suit

Minor

Film, Art, Music, and Theatre comprise the Department of Performing and Visual Arts. Cinema has been one of the influential art forms of the twentieth century. The academic study of motion pictures involves understanding their impact on culture and society, examining the aesthetic techniques used in their production, and reviewing the development of cinema as an art form. Students interested in completing a fifteen credit-hour minor in Film must begin with a prerequisite foundation course: FILM 220 (3 cr); complete two survey courses:  FILM 310 and 330 (6 cr); and then choose two electives (6 cr) from the remaining courses in Film. All film courses may fulfill humanities requirements.
