Film Minor

Housed within the Department of English, the Film Minor is an interdisciplinary course of study involving collaboration among a number of departments and programs. With courses that treat films as texts and examine the cultural and historical contexts in which films are produced, the Film Minor is open to all students at Le Moyne regardless of their major.
At Le Moyne, film minors consider the aesthetic and entertaining dimensions of films, as well as the ability of film to engage with philosophy, psychology, and society. By paying attention to the relation of film to the humanities, arts, and social sciences, film minors will pursue interdisciplinary inquiry that contributes to an understanding of the technological, narrative, documentary, and experimental nature of film.

Film minors will be invited to participate in the annual Syracuse International Film and Video Festival, an exciting community event held in the fall at venues throughout Syracuse, including Le Moyne. Opportunities are available to intern at the festival and to work on and attend pre-festival events throughout the year.

Questions should be directed to the Director of the Film Program, Julie Grossman.
