The Film Studies Minor at the University of West Georgia is designed to educate and inspire students interested in film. The program complements the university’s already strong liberal arts tradition and consists of a series of interdisciplinary courses from departments including English and Philosophy, International Languages and Cultures, History, Mass Communications, Theatre, and Psychology. These courses are designed to provide students with a solid background in the history, technical analysis, aesthetics and cultural significance of film. As an interdisciplinary minor, the film program encourages students to explore further the rich and diverse aesthetic, philosophical, historical, and cultural expressions articulated in films.
The program also hosts multiple screenings throughout the year and also sponsors a film club and student film competition. In addition to the campus offerings, the film program and its students increasingly benefit from their close proximity to the burgeoning film industry in Atlanta (where blockbusters like The Walking Dead are filmed). Now is the time to start your career in film, and UWG is a great place to do it.
