The Department of Language and Communication has expanded its teaching areas to include media and film studies thanks, in large part, to a grant from the Louisiana Board of Regents. Drs. Crank and Bauman submitted a proposal for undergraduate research in 2009 that funded the beginning of a film library to be housed in the department. Through this grant, the department has now launched a new concentration that will allow students to study and analyze classic and contemporary film. The department has also committed to screening one classic, rare, or unseen film every semester in order to generate interest in the new concentration and to utilize the new films they have received.
