Minors

The minor in Media and Screen Studies can enhance the creativity of your major, no matter what it is.  A minor permits students to gain critical tools that can be used to study the relationship of media to society, history, performance, philosophy, or psychology. We have two minors: Media and Screen Studies and Film Production. To enroll in the minor, contact Professor Joanne Morreale (214 Holmes, j.morreale@neu.edu).
