Students will critically evaluate various representations of diversity within American film. Additionally, they will gain insight into the ways in which cinematic images of different minority groups shape the way in which people are perceived in everyday life. Instruction will emphasize the acquisition of analytical skills relevant to film and cultural studies.

What Students Say About Online Classes

“Online classes allowed me to take more credits per semester while working part-time. Besides, what is better than attending school curled up on the couch and in your pajamas!”
