Film Studies Minor

Students may elect to pursue a minor in film studies, jointly offered by Communication, English, and Theater Arts and should consult the department for a complete list of courses that apply to the minor from offerings in Communication, English, and Theater Arts.  A minimum of 20 advisor-approved credits in film studies is required.  At least 16 of these credits must be taken at Portland State University from any of the three participating departments, and 16 credits must be upper-division.

Courses taken under the undifferentiated grading system (pass/no pass) will not be counted.  A minimum grade of C is required for courses to be counted toward the minor.  Advisor-approved film courses taken in communication will also be credited toward the major.
