GEOG 3050  GEOGRAPHY IN FILM (3 credits)

Our views of the world are largely shaped by images that we see through popular media. This course examines contemporary films from around the world and how they depict places, the environment, and the lives of people. Critical and constructive examination of film will enable students to understand how images produce powerful ideological messages and how they shape the representation of entire cultures and people.

Prerequisite(s): Junior standing. Introductory courses in regional, human, physical geography are highly recommended.


The Department offers both a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science in Geography. We also offer concentrations in Geographic Information Systems and Travel & Tourism, and a Minor in Geography. The geography program at UNO prepares students for careers in urban and environmental planning, geographic information systems, cartography, remote sensing, and other areas of geographic research.
