Film in English: Media & Library Resources


Several English faculty members study film and media texts, and teach a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses in these areas. The department maintains its own substantial film library that faculty and students are invited to use for teaching and research purposes. A viewing room that seats 20 people is available, as is a curriculum guide that points instructors toward valuable teaching tools.
