TIME 101 Narrative

3 credits 90.0 hours
100 level undergraduate course

This course will explore narrative’s cultural and ideological functions in art, film and design.
Students will be introduced to essential theory about what defines narrative. They will also
examine how medium affects narrative-how oral, pictorial and written narratives differ. The
course will offer an introduction to experimental ways of structuring and experiencing narrative.
In addition, this course will require that students put theory to practice. Exercises in a
range of media will ask students to apply narrative principles to their own life stories,
thereby grounding insights and theories learned from lectures and readings. The course will
encourage students to both understand and explore the many ways in which narrative can be
manipulated, across disciplines and media, to powerful effect.

This course is not repeatable for credit.
