Susquehanna University’s minor in film studies introduces students to the academic study of film. Students learn the vocabulary of film criticism and appreciation and apply it to the analysis of American and international films of the past century.
In this flexible and exciting program, students may take all five film studies courses to satisfy the minor or may take any number of film-based courses in topics such as history, English literature, political science and Jewish studies. Another option is to take screenwriting or production courses for film studies credit.
In recent years, film studies courses have been offered in topics as diverse as the history of horror films, the films of Woody Allen, cult films, Israeli cinema, and novel to film adaptations. Film classes taken while studying away are also often appropriate for transfer credit as film studies courses.
