Minor in Film Studies

Webster University proves an inspiring place to study the history, aesthetics and critical approaches to film and the film making process. It's home to the only venue in the area that regularly hosts media artists currently working in the industry.

The program includes basic film production courses and can be a launching pad for careers in film writing, producing and directing, as well as film restoration and preservation.

On campus, the university plays host to the Webster Film Series, a year-round program that prides itself as the most comprehensive alternative film series in the St. Louis region. It's here that working artists display their work. The Webster Film Series offers a premiere film almost every weekend and frequently screens classic cinema on weeknights. Past visiting filmmakers include documentary filmmaker Ken Burns and writer/director John Waters. The films are free to students.

  • A minor must be comprised of 18 credit hours taken at Webster University.

  • Students may have a major and a minor within the same department; they may not major and minor within the same area of emphasis.
