We're thrilled to be offering this semester long elective in the English Department. This course consists of learning about film by studying its history, terminology, and industry through reading, discussing, and watching several major motion pictures. Students will be required to watch some films outside of the class. Major projects include presenting various papers, and at least one speech on related topics. Other projects have several creative options for students to explore film.
This semester, we will be taking a historical approach to film studies beginning in 1895 and through the next 100 years of film making. With a century of film to cover, you can expect to work hard every day in this academically challenging course.
For class you will need:
3 ring binder with loose leaf paper
Great film sites on the Web
This site is devoted entirely to sound in film. It's organized by film title.
