I teach as an Assistant Professor of Film Studies in the English department at Minnesota State University, Mankato.  Our program balances coursework in Film Studies with practical experience in film production, and is devoted to placing students in competitive internships and work opportunities in Mankato (which is about an hour south of Minneapolis-St. Paul) and the surrounding area.  At Minnesota State I teach and have taught a number of courses, some of which include:
