New Global Film Minor

Posted by Tim on September 2, 2017 in Academics, General Education Requirements, New Programs, UB Curriculum

  • The Global Film Minor in the Department of English offers UB undergraduates the opportunity to discover vibrant cinematic traditions and innovations from around the globe. There is no requirement that Global Film minors be English majors; our minors come from all departments across UB.
  • Courses in this minor will introduce students to audiovisual analysis, artistic forms, and cultural practices in a range of countries, and novel forms of cinematic storytelling. Students will gauge the impact of new and emerging technologies on contemporary cinema and explore developments in international film production, reception, exhibition, and distribution.
  • The Minor will also provide students with a unique perspective on contemporary social and political issues, such as immigration, gender and sexuality, disability, human rights, and climate change. An understanding of global issues and exposure to different cultures through the medium of film will strengthen students’ intercultural communication competence and enhance their ability to participate in our increasingly networked world, thus facilitating the development of their careers in the international marketplace.
  • The minor consists of two required courses at the 200 level (6 credits) and four courses (12 credits) at the 300-400 level. Students may also take one course in film production to fulfill the upper division credits for the minor (see the list below).
