You might be interested to know that a new Minor in Popular Culture will be available to Dalhousie and King’s College students next year. It allows you to choose from 22 classes in Contemporary Studies, Early Modern Studies, English, Film Studies, French, Journalism, Music, and Theatre. If you take 3.5 credits in those classes you can declare the minor as part of your degree.

The full list of classes is as follows. All of these classes are taught regularly, most every two years, and some every year. All listed classes are suitable choices for the Minor in Popular Culture Studies, and those marked with * are strongly recommended as foundational methods classes.
