Earlier this month we reported on Colorado College's push for a new film and new media major as part of "How to succeed in film," a story on the success of CC alums in Hollywood.

CC has announced approval of the major, in addition to a new minor in global health, stating in a release that "The film and new media studies major is a response to student interest, expertise, and demand. It also is a result of the Cornerstone Arts Initiative, which stresses interdisciplinary teaching of the arts, using technology to facilitate collaboration between departments."

The global health minor "is a result of a growing student movement for global health equity and social justice, which has sparked a desire to understand complex issues of health inequality. The minor encompasses interests of students from a wide range of departments, including biology, political science, economics, sociology, and anthropology."

According to spokesperson Leslie Weddell, both the major and minor will go into effect at the start of the fall semester.
