New Interdisciplinary Film and Media Studies Minor

Clint Eastwood and Gregory Peck

The new interdisciplinary Minor in Film and Media Studies allows students to develop visual literacy through a focus on the history and criticism of film and media. Students take courses in multiple disciplines, making the minor complementary to many majors. 

You can add the Minor through GUS. For more information, please contact Co-Directors Jamie McDaniel or Casie Hermansson in the Department of English or the English Department Office at 235-4689. You can find information on required classes and electives at the minor's webpage.

Student and Faculty Activities

Faculty and students in the PSU English Department participate in a range of departmental activities outside the classroom. 

The Distinguished Visiting Writers Series brings prominent writers to our campus for readings, class discussions, and conversation. Each year the winner of the Victor J. Emmett Memorial Prize is invited to campus to receive the prize and present a scholarly lecture. Our students write, edit, and produce Cow Creek Review, the student literary journal that showcases our students' fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry. The department also sponsors Sigma Tau Delta English Honors Society.

Faculty and students also work with a number of community organizations, including the Veterans Writing Group led by Professors Skip Morris and Mick White, Southeast Kansas Community Action Program, and Pittsburg Public Library.
