Examination of the post-1975 blockbuster film phenomenon with an emphasis on marketing, finance, and reception.
As part of a curriculum revision, Film and Media Studies proposes to recreate several courses it has regularly offered as 500-level advanced special topics courses at the more appropriate 300 level. This revision also updates the elective distribution better to accommodate faculty specializations, student needs, and the state of the discipline. This regularly offered class is proposed as a stand-alone course in the appropriate distribution. In additional to developing skills necessary to explain a major variety of popular film, it also develops methods from the emerging subfiled of media industry studies. We will require foundational work in those methods in FAMS 308: Global Media Insdustries. This course will alow instrested students to advance their skills.
It is suggested to add a minimum grade for the two prerequisites listed. For example, a minimum grade of "D" would indicate that the student passed the course. Department may want to list a higher minimum grade, if appropriate. This will allow us to enforce the prerequisite in Banner at the time of registration.
Your proposal is being returned for the following reason(s):
If the above concerns are addressed, and the proposal reaches the Curricula and Courses Committee by October 20, 2017, noon it will be approved and included in those courses being recommended to the Faculty Senate for consideration at the upcoming Faculty Senate meeting. Should your proposal not reach the committee by the stated deadline, the next Curricula and Courses review cycle will begin in November, and you still would be able to get it approved for the next bulletin.
