Thoughtful viewing of diverse films (in required weekly screenings), along with ample discussion and critical reading and writing, to gain understanding of cinematic expression and of film's capacity to entertain and to exert artistic and social influence. Course Information: Same as MACS 104.

Special Instructions:

We all like films, but do you know how film has developed over time as a technology, as a social institution, and as a political tool- Do you know how films vary around the world, or why we as film viewers understand and enjoy them- Come and explore these questions in small classes that allow you to have meaningful discussions with accomplished faculty and other smart, engaged students. By the end of this course, you-ll have acquired the skills to appreciate and analyze movies of many different genres, styles, time periods, and cultures. Students in this course will need access to online streaming services to watch at least one film per week. Course work includes quizzes, papers, and one or more exams. Intro to Film is an appropriate prerequisite for more advanced film courses in English and MACS. This course earns 3 credit hours and qualifies as a General Education course in Humanities and the Arts.
