Welcome to the website for the East Tennessee State University Minor in Film Studies.
The Film Studies Minor seeks to educate students about film in an interdisciplinary context. The goals of this program are to encourage serious consideration of film as an art form, to explore film as a medium of communication, and to examine the power of film in shaping attitudes, values, and our understanding of society and the world.
Courses are designed to provide students with knowledge of the techniques of the filmmaking process, the historical development of film as an institution, film theory, and methods of critical analysis, a curriculum resulting in an awareness of the relationship of film to broader issues within various disciplines.
We invite those with an interest in studying film as a fine art to browse through our website and to contact its director, Dr. Stanton McManus. Thank you for your interest in the Film Studies Minor at East Tennessee State University.
