    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course is designed to make you think critically about film. They teach you about how different elements of the film work together. They give you different perspectives by showing you foreign films, so you're just not exposed to only Hollywood. The professors test you on what you've learned through an essay, a midterm and a final. It's a required class but it's very fulfilling.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to analyze film in a more detailed way than ever had.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The midterm and final are brutal. GO TO THE STUDY SESSIONS. They have a lot of them weekly. Take advantage of this if you're confused. Create a study group with the people in your class. This is typical a freshman course so you'll be new to each other anyway.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a very comprehensive introduction to all things film. This course is co-taught by many experienced professors that have the knowledge to teach film analysis, film language, and how film production translates to the big screen.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was the weekly movie example supporting and demonstrating the topic for the week. I learn through demonstration, so having a weekly professional example helped me to see exactly what we had learned that week.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to keep up with the readings because those are essential for the exams. Also, getting feedback on your midterm paper is essential because you could bring your grade up a whole letter grade for your rewrite.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a grueling course but efficient in getting the basics of film composure for the students down pat. If you want to produce and make films, this is an important course to take!

    Course highlights:

    It gave the students a more critical eye about film and how to make their own films. We can tell what is effective and what isn't, the development of film throughout the centuries, and what constitutes an effective film.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take a lot of notes. Don't be discouraged by some of the faculty. Seek help with your peers and the PLUG sessions. Don't blow off the readings. DON'T!
