POS-3180 Politics in Film

3 credits

Prerequisite: None.

The course introduces students to the role films can have in representing and shaping politics.

Because films can capture and sometimes shape political knowledge, the course examines the

nature of propaganda. Moreover, the class uses films as a vehicle for learning fundamental

political concepts. The course is designed to enhance student's ability to interpret the

political content of mass media. (Spring semesters, even years)
