Film Studies

The Minor in Film Studies offers students the opportunity for interdisciplinary preparation in film analysis.  The focus of the Film Studies minor is analytical, with specific focus on the appreciation of film as an aesthetic and fictive medium.  With its focused program centered on the analysis of film narrative, Film Studies has become an important interdisciplinary field of study, particularly because courses in film analysis allow students the chance to develop excellent critical thinking skills, an enhanced appreciation of artistic form, and a broad understanding of our global context.  Through courses taught in several different departments across the University, the Film Studies minor at UTRGV provides a strong background in film analysis while also providing a unique chance for students to immerse themselves in an increasingly popular academic subject: Film.
