    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend this class because of the way that it is structured, Most of my class is in the general opinion all we are getting out of the course is the DV but not really the FA. The class is 4:50 long and before you get through one topic you are already onto the next one. It is face paced. Maybe a little to fast paced. Movies should be able to be consumed from home for a number of different reasons.

    Course highlights:

    Honestly the course is laid out in such a way to make you understand the history behind Hollywood and the societal impact that film has. It has taught me to be a better consumer of films

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to talk about uncomfortable subjects in front of the class. Sex, Violence and discrimination are in a lot of the movies that we have watched. Prepare your self for discussions in which people may have different opinions then you. Especially if your opinion goes against the Dominant Ideology.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    OMG, one of the best classes I have taken so far in my college career.

    Course highlights:

    The best thing about this class were the films we watched and the really deep conversation that followed. Some of the film highlights were 'The Hunting Ground', 'Children Of Men', 'A Single Man' and 'Miss Representation'. It may have just been the people in our class, but the class discussion was amazing and very deep. It blew Anita away too.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take this from Anita, just know that she's old and can ramble a bit. Just stick with it and pay attention and you'll understand what she's trying to say. She's a brilliant woman and someone to look up too. Talk to her about the film after class too and she'll like you immediately.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This was a pretty average course to me. The information was interesting but we did the same thing every week. Monday a group would present their chapter and then we'd watch half the movie and on Wednesday we'd finish the movie and discuss it. Very predictable and repetitious. However, I did enjoy the majority of the films that we watched and I am glad to be checking off two different general classes in this class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about society and the different cultures in America. We discuss a lot of social injustices throughout American history since film was born including race, gender, sexuality, class, masculinity/femininity, etc. It was interesting to see how each different demographic is displayed in film and what affect that has on society.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you participate in class and show up!! A good portion of your grade in this class is attendance and participation so definitely go to class. Half of the class is watching films so it's not difficult anyway. Also, make sure you do each week's assignment, it isn't hard but the points add up a lot.
