In Spring 2006, a committee from several departments in the College of Arts and Sciences proposed the formation of an interdisciplinary Film Studies Minor at the University of West Georgia. The description for the proposed minor is as follows:

The film minor at the University of West Georgia is designed to educate and inspire students interested in film. The addition of a film minor to the curriculum will complement the University of West Georgia’s strong liberal arts tradition. The minor consists of a series of courses from departments including English and Philosophy, Foreign Languages and Literatures, History, Mass Communications and Theatre Arts, and Psychology. These courses are designed to provide students with a solid background in the history, technical analysis, aesthetics and cultural significance of film. As an interdisciplinary minor, film studies encourages students to explore further the rich and diverse aesthetic, philosophical, historical, and cultural expressions articulated in films.
