In an era of saturation in both traditional and new media, media literacy is necessary for critical media consumption. A minor in cinema studies will serve students insofar as much of the research and developments in both media literacy and new media are rooted in cinema studies. A minor in cinema studies will thus provide not only the foundation for an understanding of the creative aspects of filmmaking, but the foundation for the critical consumption of media in general.
