Brief Summary of ProposalParallel to the existing Japanese Culture through Film course, the proposed courses in Arabic and in Chinese culture through film will serve as an additional access to the cultural perspectives in the contemporary Middle East and in China. Through exposing students to authentic regional films, it will allow students to view these cultures from a native internal perspective. Furthermore, these courses are designed to meet the objectives of the Area Studies and Cultural Diversity core requirement, and thus their inclusion in the General Education Program is appropriate. The courses also will be an elective for students pursuing the certificate in Middle Eastern Studies or in Asian Studies
