ENGL.2320 Turning Fiction into Film (Formerly 42.232)

Id: 005048 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


This course explores film adaptation by looking at how writing can be turned into the visual and auditory forms. Through reading novels and watching their film adaptations, students learn conventions of fiction and film, and draw on this knowledge to discover the implications of adapting a written story into a movie. By asking students to think about the different ways writers and filmmakers convey meaning to their audiences, this course attempts to answer the question of why the movie is never exactly like the book.


Pre-Req: ENGL.1020 College Writing II.
