There will be 4 tests, plus a cumulative final exam. Each exam will consist of multiple choice questions from the lectures, text, reserve readings, and films. The final exam is the same format as the mid-term tests, and is mostly cumulative. Students drop their lowest mid-term exam grade. Each test is worth 20% of your grade. The final 20% of your grade is based on group work.
