PROPOSED COURSE NUMBER and/or TITLE: Abbreviated Course Title, if necessary: FILM 270 Introduction to Film Analysis PROPOSED COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course is designed to equip students with the tools necessary to become critically aware and capable film viewers by introducing elements of film form, processes of textual analysis, a variety of cinematic techniques used in narrative and nonnarrative cinema, and other models of critical analysis used in film criticism.

LEARNING OUTCOMES: By the end of this course, 1) Students will have learned and be able to use a specialized vocabulary necessary for film analysis. 2) Students will understand individual films as texts rich with meanings and values and develop their own analytical skills and critical perspectives in viewing them. 3) Students will be able to articulate their own analytical thoughts of films competently through both critical writing and dialogues. 2 RATIONALE: In the current semester, there are five sections of “Introduction to Film Analysis,” all offered as IS Perspective course (IHFILM 270). The Film faculty recognizes a strong need to offer at least two sections of this course per semester for majors only since majors and non-majors take this course for different reasons with different levels of knowledge, interests and investment.
