Minor, Film and Design: Curriculum

The Film and Design minor addresses an increasing demand in media and design industries, locally and globally, for professionals who are highly competent in the creative work of crafting impactful visual narratives using traditional and emerging technologies. The minor is a collaboration of Northwestern University Qatar and Virginia Commonwealth University Arts Qatar, the two degree granting institutions, in partnership with the Doha Film Institute. The Film and Design minor will create advanced learning opportunities for students that are not possible without the minor.

Film and Design minor requirements

  • Six elective courses at NUQ or VCUArts Qatar, but at least two in either institution.
  • Each of these courses must be passed with a grade of C or higher. 
  • Portfolio presentation during final semester before graduation.

Double counting rules: 

Northwestern Qatar students pursuing the Film and Design minor may not double-count courses to fulfill the major requirements and the minor.
