Concentration in English

English majors, at their option, may focus on a Film and media Studies concentration within the department.
This optional, specialized area of study is offered to focus student work in the major. 

  • Film and Media Studies

This concentration requires the dedication of a minimum of 12 elective credits to a course of study developed by the student in consultation with the student’s faculty advisor.

Note that the required course (ENG 213) is ideally taken first. However, students are permitted to take their concentration courses in any order to meet their scheduling needs and interests.

At the discretion of the English department chair, courses other than those listed may be approved as counting towards a Film and Media Studies Concentration to accommodate individual student interests and needs.
