What Can I Do with a Minor in Cinema Studies?
Cinema has a tremendous influence in the worlds of art, politics, culture, and economics, and film and other forms of visual culture are essential to understanding the politics and practices of representation.
Students gain professional experience by assisting in the development and organization of film series, film festivals, and cinema forums for the university and Flagstaff community.
