This course helps support first-generation students hoping to pursue admission to the College of Film and the Moving Image. It is open to students also enrolled in FILM 307 (The Language of Hollywood) who may be disadvantaged in framing questions, integrating argument and detail, and college-level writing. The First Things Film seminar will allow us to devote time and attention to support these students, take them further, and help them join CFILM. A major component of the seminar will be the development and revision of analytical writing. This isn't a remedial course of study, but an experiment in shaping our pedagogy around the specific needs of an underrepresented group.
