Students are required to write weekly papers on each film screened, including the Q & A itself. [This ULEC is in category 3, Interdisciplinary Approaches to the Arts and Humanities.]

Note: Students must register for both the lecture and discussion section of this course. The lecture meeting of this course will be delivered online at the time listed in this catalog entry. All discussion sections are scheduled to be delivered in-person and on campus, with the exception of section X (CRN 13012). Section X will be delivered online in order to accomodate students who must complete the ULEC requirement in Fall 2021 and who are also not able to access in-person classes in Fall 2021. All other students should plan to attend their discussion section in-person.
