ENG535 - Film as Literature
1 Semester 0.5 Credit Fulfills: English



This one semester course will examine the strategies filmmakers use to tell stories. Students will view movies to examine both literary and technical aspects of filmmaking, including characterization, narration, camera work, and set design. Students will be expected to write critical responses, participate in seminar-based discussions, and deliver presentations analyzing films viewed in class. Because the film viewing and assessments will be done primarily in class, good attendance and participation are essential. The films in this course range from silent to contemporary, and ratings range from “PG” to “R”.
