It depends on the prof...when I took it the prof worked in Medieval history, so that is the topic we covered. Be prepared to do readings and write multiple papers. It wasn't very difficult, but falling behind in the readings or missing a film can really affect your grade. Most of the films are from the 30's-70's.

Great course, great prof! Be prepared to actually learn History though. Most of the films are pre-70s, and a few are translated into English. If that doesn't bother you you'll do fine.
