Cinema and the Community College.
Brown, Kent R.
The findings of a survey conducted to gather information about the state of film study at two-year colleges in the United States are reported in this paper. The responses of 51 schools are reported in the following areas: (1) curriculum areas represented by the respondent; (2) titles of courses; (3) institutional enrollment; (4) class enrollment, rental costs of films, and numbers of films screened; (5) course tenure; (6) rationale for inclusion of film courses in the curriculum; and (7) extent of cross-discipline teaching. The reported findings suggest that film study courses are an integral part of the two-year college curriculum. The paper then discusses the expanding interest in film study courses across the nation, sets forth a rationale for incorporating films into speech communication programs, and delineates some practical problems that must be faced in developing such courses.
