  • Location IconBrookings Main Campus

Do you like movies?

As an interdisciplinary program across the Schools of Design, English, and Communication and Journalism, the film studies minor promotes media literacy and critical appreciation/understanding of the media in the world today. Graduates of the program will be more knowledgeable of the audiovisual elements that help to drive an increasingly digital economy. They will not only be more capable of cultural critique in an abstract sense, but better able to understand and manipulate audiovisual imagery in business and other practical contexts.

Undecided or still deciding on a major and future career?

If you are uncertain about your major and have questions about career planning, you are not alone. Choosing a major or career can be a very difficult decision. The exploratory studies program may be a good fit if you are unsure of your major and career focus. Entering the university in the exploratory studies program will help you gain confidence and valuable insights on majors and minors available at SDSU and future career choices. 

In addition, FOCUS 2 Career, a self-guided assessment, education and career planning program, will help you reflect on your values, interests, personality traits and skills to provide valuable insight as you explore major and career choices. SDSU students may access FOCUS 2 Career by using their student email and password. After completing FOCUS 2 Career, you may find it helpful to discuss your results with a career coach in the Office of Career Development.
