In the Minor and Major in World Cinemas, you explore the major trends that have shaped film from its birth to its current state. Comprised of courses from various departments at the Faculty of Arts (Communication, English, Français, Modern Languages and Literature, and Music), these programs gives you the knowledge you need to better appreciate the world's greatest cinematographic works and the legacy they've left for all humanity. What's more, as globalization transforms the world and as cultural products cross borders faster and faster, cinema is both a particularly effective tool for helping us to know ourselves and others and a catalyst for more productive personal and cross-cultural understanding and dialogue.

This program is offered in English and in French. 

The table below includes only discipline-specific courses. Please refer to the Academic Regulations for information on including a minor to your degree.
