Minor in Cinema
This program does not lead to a credential or degree but is intended to give students an opportunity to further their interests in cinema in an organized manner. Note: Cinema majors are given enrollment priority in Cinema production classes, hence Cinema minors are not likely to be able to take Cinema production classes.

Gain understanding of the relation of cinema to other arts, to the development of new technologies, and to the industrial-social basis of domestic and international cultural production.
