MCFL 3355. Film History II. 3 Hours.
Students in this course trace the history of film as a mass media, art form, and industry from 1945 to the present day. World War II and the advent of electronic media fundamentally changed the societal and technological nature of cinema. Students analyze the global film history in the postwar era and the age of new and emerging media; they also explore specific film concepts, historical contexts and canonical works in a discursive setting.
Prerequisite: MCOM 2366 and a score of 80 or higher on the Grammar Module.
