EN 2220 - Introduction to Film

This course will introduce students to the critical interpretation of film as a narrative form and cultural product. The textual analysis of film involves examining the formal aspects of the medium - e.g., screenwriting, acting, cinematography, editing, mise-en-scene, narrative and sound - through a variety of theoretical and critical approaches. Students successfully completing this course will have improved their ability to communicate by using writing as a means of personal discovery and intellectual growth, as well as a practical method for recording what has been learned; they will also have garnered a fuller understanding of how to evaluate, apply and experiment with the intersection of visual and textual narratives. Prerequisites: College Writing I and II. This course may be substituted for EN 2028 with approval of English Department Chair.

Prerequisite(s):   Take EN-1101 EN-1201 or EN-1211
