English Department - Film

Film courses at LCC focus on the aesthetic, historical, cultural, critical, and theoretical analysis of film. The introductory series—ENG 195, 196, 197—explores aesthetic and formal aspects of film texts as they relate to important elements of cinematic history--primarily U.S. film history but also other, international film histories.

Other film courses focus on film movements, genres, and directors. All film courses satisfy an Arts and Letters requirement. Additionally, FA 264 satisfies a Diversity requirement.

The sequence is offered on a yearly basis, while ENG 271 (Horror), 272 (Comedy), 273 (Noir) and FA 264 (Women Directors) are offered on a rotating basis every 2-3 yeaars.

If you have questions about film classes or LCC's student film club, email Kate Sullivan.
