The minor helps students gain an understanding of the artistic and cultural contexts of film in relation to hands-on experience with the tools of filmmaking to encourage learning by doing.

CCCU courses from the LA Film Studies Center may be used to fulfill up to 9 hours of the film minor requirements.
