Minor in Film Studies

Requirements - 15 Credits

Course Requirements:

  • 3 Credits of ENGL 205 (Introduction to Film)

  • 3 Credits of ENGL 308 at Pittsburgh Filmmakers***

  • 9 Credits of Film Studies Electives 
    3 of these 9 credits may be taken at Pittsburgh Filmmakers depending on availability
    - 3 of these 9 credits may be satisfied by a film class taken outside the English Department
    The English Department will determine whether film-oriented classes offered by other departments will count toward the Film Studies minor.

***Though courses in filmmaking are not taught at Duquesne University, courses in this field may be taken at Pittsburgh Filmmakers (477 Melwood Ave. / 412-681-5449).

  • No more than one course may count for both the Film Minor and a student's Major.

  • English majors may opt for the Film Minor, since English (literature and writing) and Film are distinct disciplines.
