Open to Degree and CDE students

Section Description

A course open to all students who wish to learn about the phenomenon that is Stephen King, America's Storyteller for the past half a century. You do not need film or English pre-requisiites to enroll in this course--just a desire to learn about elements that go into interpreting film and a desire to watch and discuss movies such as CARRIE, THE SHINING, THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, MISERY, IT, etc. This is not only the professor's favorite class to teach, it may well be the class that is the most fun to take at UVM.

Section Expectation

This will be a course with a large enrollment, but the prof will nonetheless encourage discussion and interaction among members of the class. Attendance will be required, whether remotely or in person.


A single paper dealing with a 2 minute analysis from one of the films we will watch, and a cumulative take-home final exam. Credit will also be rewarded for attendance and class participation.
