FIL 2835 - Appreciation of Film

(3 Credit Hours)

Three hours per week. Prerequisites: Concurrent registration or completion of ENC 1101  with a grade of “C” or better.

This course meets part of the International/Intercultural requirement. It is designed to improve understanding and appreciation of film as an art form by emphasizing a genre-study approach. This is a critical and historical exploration through lecture, feature film screenings, discussion, text readings and written assignments with a basic introduction to film theory and the rudimentary principles of film production. Appreciation of Film also includes examples from other media such as literature, theatre, music and television, to compare how those forms address the genre conventions.
