    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    As someone who loves film, this was one of my favorite classes of the semester. The lessons I've learned in that class reinforced my love for the art of filmmaking.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were definitely the weekly labs where we would watch a film relevant to the lesson that week (for instance, we watched Alien while we were talking about genre filmmaking and films that embodied more than one genre). I learned to how to watch films more analytically as well as other aspects of filmmaking I was less familiar with.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    ALWAYS study for the quizzes. Even if you think you know enough without studying, it's easy to confuse some of the terminology, especially while you are taking the quiz. At the very least, refresh you memory before taking the quizzes

    Course Overview:

    Incredible, hip professor. Very interesting class that keeps the subject matter interesting to our generation.

    The process of filming, different a types of film, and how everything is created. There's a movie every Monday.

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take this professor and course if you are needing a humanities credit! It's worth it!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Screen studies is surprisingly fun and relevant, no matter what your major happens to be! The professor as well as the Teaching Assistants are very knowledgeable and helpful.

    Course highlights:

    The course focuses mostly on the technical aspects of cinema, such as the equipment and methods used to achieve the movements and effects of the film. There is a lab every week in which you watch a movie. It should be noted many of these films are black and white and/or foreign in origin and therefore require subtitles. I don't think this should be a deterrent in any way, but if these films are not to your interest I would perhaps be prepared for it or reconsider because screenings of the films are mandatory. There is also one meeting per week in which you have class with a smaller group of students. This is run by the TA's and works as supplement learning to the main course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is not a course that is easy to pass if you do not put the work and dedication into it. Although there are few 'normal' tests, there are several projects in the course that require your utmost dedication and diligence. The course is term heavy and you have to be prepared to pay attention in class and be able to apply the concepts beyond just defining them.
