BCST 2300 - Critiquing Film and Video Stories

Broadcast Communications Part-time Studies Course

School of Business

Course Details

In this course a variety of genres of film and video are explored for techniques storytellers use to prompt audience revelations about themes such as culture, politics, religion, history, race, and/or gender. Students will screen and critique stories portrayed in film and video, and reflect on the cinematic elements—including horror and monsters—that raise questions such as who we are as a society, where we came from, and where we may be going. Learners will engage in discussions about how a story’s creative design influences society, and complete several writing assignments.
