    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it 100%. The class consists of phenomenal films and engaging discussions. My film knowledge and criticism skills increased and I also improved my argumentative skills.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to analyze a film in terms of cinematography, composition, blocking, and even set design. We learn how a director and or screenwriter uses various visual and sound techniques to tell the story.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to attend every film screening. Film screenings in the school's theater is much more engaging with classmates and the discussions dive deeper into the film's message.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was a cool class, not too hard, and pretty laid-back. I learned a lot about film and the elements of film that give it meaning. The professor knew her stuff and was fun to listen to. We also had discussions of the lectures every week that increased understanding.

    Course highlights:

    The films were broken down pretty understandably, and related to each element of film pretty clearly. Everything was explained well. People who don't know much about film (like me) are sure to learn a lot.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take this class assuming it's gonna be a walk in the park. And if you do, do the readings. Nobody checks up on you making sure you do it, so it's easy to just not, but they are definitely important for the midterm/final.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Shin does an excellent job of presenting a wide variety of films in her class in order to teach the different aspects of film. She is very well organized in her presentations and assignments, and she is always willing to offer feedback to those who inquire. She takes great pride in making her class enjoyable and comprehensible for her students. I highly recommend taking any and all of her classes.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the fundamentals of cinematography, mise en scene, editing, directing, acting, and sound design/mixing. I also got introduced to genres that I probably would have never would have explored on my own, mainly film noir.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in lecture, participate if you can (although you won't be penalized if you don't), and follow her prompts closely. All of her assignments and handouts are very detailed and straightforward, so you should get a good grade by simply following directions.
