Choosing to minor in film studies at Concordia will allow you to discover ways to apply your liberal arts education to film through critiquing, analyzing and appreciating this unique art form. Film is a vibrant and dynamic part of our culture, demonstrating how people interact, communicate, think, and define themselves and the communities in which they live.

Students who complete the program will be able to:

  • read media and film through the unique communication of cinematic language and grammar
  • analyze cinematic texts and contextualize them within a greater understanding of the world
  • critically examine aspects of both narrative content and production processes of studio-originated and independent motion picture making
  • communicate how issues and ideas contained within cinematic texts affect perceptions of class, gender, race, and social and political movements
