Loyola's interdisciplinary minor in film studies offers courses in film history and theory, national cinema traditions, genre studies, and video and digital production processes. Students interested in any aspect of film can easily integrate the program's courses into the coursework required by their major.

The minor in film studies provides students with the necessary skills to understand cinema as both an art form and a reflection of modern history and consciousness by promoting a stronger critical awareness of the power of images in our culture. The skills learned in the minor also help prepare students for careers in public relations, teaching, journalism, government, the arts and business.
