The Film and Media Studies program at Minnesota State University, Mankato provides courses in the study of film as an art, writing about film, and film/video production. Housed in the English Department, the program offers a minor in Film Studies, a BA in Film and Media Studies, and coursework for MA Literature and English Studies students seeking to enhance their major area of study through the critical study of film. The BA is an interdisciplinary degree that combines courses from English in film studies and digital production with courses from the Mass Media Department in media studies. This emphasis on both the critical evaluation of media as well as its production (including technical, creative, aesthetic, historical, theoretical, and cultural perspectives) prepares majors for careers in news, public relations, film production, other-media related fields, and graduate work in film and media studies. Building on a successful minor (launched 2007), the major (launched 2015) has already grown to more than 50 majors and about 35 minors from diverse backgrounds.
