Minor Programs in the Department of Humanities
LCU Department of Humanities offers several minor programs to add a robust specialization to any degree program:
Minor in Film Studies
In this interdisciplinary minor, you will study one of the most influential art forms of the twentieth century and today—film. This minor will give you a greater understanding of film as a medium, prepare you to think and write critically about film as an interpretable text, and give you a taste of practical production skills.
A minor in film studies will support your development in a variety of careers by sharpening skills that are key to your success in today’s workplace—critical thinking, problem solving, oral and visual communication, writing, research, and understanding cultural and global perspectives. Many organizations hire people with an understanding of film to help with their websites and training videos. If you are looking to begin a career in production, the job outlook for Film/Video Editors and Camera Operators is very good. An entry-level Bachelor’s degree in a related field along with some technical experience is all that is required and the job forecast for 2018-2028 is estimated at 11% growth, “much faster than average.” Bureau of Labor Statistics
