In the spring of 2018, the Film Studies minor was renamed to Film and Media Studies minor. Students who were enrolled prior to the Spring 2018 term have the option to stay Film Studies minor or change to the Film and Media Studies minor. They will have until the end of the Fall 2017 term to choose to complete the program under the current name. Students who choose to complete their program under the current name must do so by Summer 2020 term. There are no program requirement changes.
Only one elective course for the minor can be taken on an S/NC basis. Half of the courses for the minor must be taken at Pitt. Students pursuing the minor must meet with the film studies advisors to check their progress. Courses taken at other schools must be approved.
