    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you like politics and you like film, I highly recommend this class! You will learn SO much! There is an absurd amount of reading, but you can get away with not doing most of it, as long as you are able to still feel confident enough to participate in your TA discussion section.

    Course highlights:

    There are mandatory movie screenings every week. Often times it was annoying to have to go to class to watch them though, and people would opt out and just watch the movies at home on Netflix. The professor was not happy about that, she said seeing it on the big screen makes a big difference. You learn a lot about soft power and hard power. You learn about politics and the role they play in American films. It's a very interesting class!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Watch every movie they assign! You can skip lecture if you go to your TA discussions. Never miss a movie-review (you have one every week), it seems like 2% of your grade won't make a difference, but those add up quickly and in the end they can make a real difference in your final grade!
