AMES89S Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: A-

This class was extremely easy. I only spent around 2 hours a week writing the weekly blog posts that we're required to write. Attendance is mandatory, but if you go to class every week and do the bare minimum, you'll get a good grade. The two group projects and the final project were basically graded on completion.

AMES89S Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: A+

Having no interest in media studies, the class did well to keep me engaged. Prof.Hong's freshmen seminar was gently guided-He allowed us to explore whatever we wanted and never really assigned harsh deadlines. Brought in many highly skilled guests and took us on explorations in Durham. A gem of a professor; just an odd class for 89S. Learned iMovie

His first year seminar on Visual Culture was very easy! Just make sure to go to all the classes and do the work, and you are guaranteed a good grade. He makes the topic very interesting!

AMES188 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Spring 2010 got shafted for this class. We were required to watch 6+ hours of film (instead of 2 hours) and submit a 750 word response each week. Also, there was a 8 page final paper and a group project. Hong demands in-depth film analysis from his students, which typically involve throwing around words such as 'diegiesis' and 'spatiality.'

AMES49S Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

A nice class to start off the first semester. Prof. Hong can be strict over attendence and participation, but otherwise, he is a very tolerent professor; you'll get an A as long as you make effort.

AALL495 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Prof. Hong was one of the best profs I've ever had. he inspired me to continue asian film studies! i just got back from a trip to hong kong, where i felt right at home in the theater. P-L-U-S the prof is super cute :) which makes class even more fun! TAKE THIS CLASS! (the TA was a nazi! but she's gone now)

While this class was a slight disappointment,we did not really watch films(a few small clips)it was interesting & I would highly reccommend it.Prof Hong is awesome.We had to write 6 2page responses (graded based on if you did it) & 3 projects and one final project.Prof Hong really cares about his students& I would def take another course with him.

AALL49S Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Definately an easy class. Met once a week to discuss the readings. There was a weekly 2-pg response paper to the selected readings and 3 group projects which were quite easy. Final project was the topic of your choice and a final paper but it wasn't too bad. Great professor! He was enthusiastic about this course.

AALL 179 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Decent class. Good discussion on films/analysis. But readings were often overly lengthy and not too relevant. Grades are assigned solely on weekly responses (so just respond to the movies rather than readings) and midterm/final paper, which are graded leniently. So just do work according to the syllabus for an A/-. TA is somewhat of a Nazi though.
