English Department - Film

Film courses at LCC focus on the aesthetic, historical, cultural, critical, and theoretical analysis of film. The introductory series—ENG195, ENG196, ENG 197—closely mirrors the University of Oregon's The History of the Motion Picture sequence and is concerned with aesthetic, technological, cultural, and economic histories of cinema, 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), ENG 272 (Comedy), ENG 273 (Noir) and FA 264 (Women Directors) are offered on a rotating basis every 2-3 years.

Winter Term 2018: ENG 196: Film History is being offered Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2-4, with a Thursday screening 4-6. If you have any trouble registering, please email Kate Sullivan

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