Assessment
and Goals
:

Assessment: There will be discussions in a seminar type of atmosphere. There will also be a final exam and eight-page paper. The goal of the course is to introduce students to Hispanic film as a form of artistic expression and cultural understanding, as well as to foster critical viewing and analysis of the medium.

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THIS COURSE EXPANDS THE DISCIPLINE'S OFFERING IN THE HUMANITIES AREA, AND WILL GIVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO NON-MAJORS IN THE LANGUAGE TO LEARN ABOUT FILMS BEING PRODUCED THROUGHOUT THE HISPANIC WORLD. IT ALSO PROVIDES AN OPTION FOR LATIN AMERICAN AREA STUDIES STUDENTS TO TAKE COURSES IN HISPANIC CULTURE WITHOUT THE NEED FOR ADVANCED LANGUAGE STUDY.
