    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Hatch is detailed, organized, and clear in all of her lectures. She is engaging with students, and her constant use of videos to make a point help class go by faster!

    Course highlights:

    This class introduces A LOT of key concepts to understanding film studies at its core. The definitions by the book seem the overlap and not stand out, but Professor Hatch knows how to break down complex concepts in a way that a class of 300+ students can all understand. If you are looking into pursuing a degree in film studies, this is the way to go because you will never forget the core concepts taught by Hatch.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Participate in lecture and discussion! Your participation grade is higher than you think. Also, for the essays, be as detailed as possible.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    If you're a film major or minor, you have to take this course. However, I would recommend it to anyone who needs GE credit in Humanities. It's a simple class but is great for learning the basics of film production from all the major positions. We also watch fantastic films and gain a further understanding of them through analysis and discussion that hightens one's appreciation for it.

    Course highlights:

    Getting to watch classic films like The Shining, The Graduate, and Umbrellas of Cherbourg in a theater like setting with 300 other people. I learned that there is a huge difference between watching movies alone and watching them with an audience. It changes one's reactions to certain scenes and even understanding. Also, getting to see these old movies on the big screen is infinitely better than watching them on a TV, laptop, or phone.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take it if you have no interest in film. Also, if Lim is the professor, be prepared to do a lot of printing.
