Looking for a fun online film course?

ULIB300: Film and Media Literacy is a 12-week online film course students can take from anywhere they have internet access. Past students have traveled to Lebanon, Australia, France and traveled around the United States on a Harley-Davidson.

In ULIB300, students study the concepts of media literacy in the context of film genres remixed in Quentin Tarantino movies such as gangster, dark comedy, blaxploitation, slasher and westerns, along with Tarantino’s films, film vocabulary, criticism and marketing. At the end of the course, students choose another genre they are interested in or propose a new one and create a research guide.

This 3-credit course fulfills GEC 5 and 7, and GEF 6. It runs May 15-Aug. 8. To register in STAR, use the Class Schedule Search and set Subject to Library Instruction and Campus Location to All.
