Film. The Film Minor

Are you interested in cinema? Documentaries? Experimental film? Then you should consider a minor in Film. This interdisciplinary minor covers both film studies and filmmaking in all genres of experimental, narrative, and documentary film. It is an appropriate complement to either a major or minor in Foreign Languages. You will be able to take courses through the Departments of Art and Art History, Theatre, English, Music, History, and Foreign Languages and Literature. You can learn more about the minor requirements in the UAB Undergraduate Catalog.

Employers in almost every industry are looking for employees with the ability to put together videos to advertise services, promote events, or create the next viral hit. A minor in film can give you a leg up in the fields of communication, nonprofits, education, social work, and many other fields.
