Class Details (Information is updated at 5 a.m., noon and 5 p.m. CST)
Film is used to explore and demonstrate the relevance of sociological thinking. Taking an active role, students will learn to go beyond the director's theory of the plot and the character's motivations, and analyze it with their own sociologically informed perspective. As critics, students are encouraged to draw sociological meaning from the film that the film-makers may not have intended. Co-listed as FILM/SOCI 310 (prerequisites SOCI 100 or FILM 200 or Consent of Instructor; as offered).
