The film minor offers courses in film history, theory, and criticism, and is designed for students who wish to study the political, cultural, and social significance of the art form. In this interdisciplinary program students will begin with an introduction to film (FILM 120) before proceeding to specialized courses that examine both western and non-western cinema from distinct aesthetic, cultural, historical and theoretical perspectives.
UNC’s film faculty regularly offer variable-topic courses on such subjects as “Melodramas and Musicals,” “On Stardom and Celebrity,” “Monsters and Madmen,” and “Queer Theory.” We also offer introductory and advanced courses in screenwriting.
There are no application procedures or requirements for students wishing to declare the minor. Students must pass their classes with a grade of D or better, and must maintain a grade point average of 2.0 in the minor. The Film Studies Director may approve variable topic courses offered by other program areas as minor electives, provided they exhibit a significant focus in film studies.
