Department Section Description: 

TV Aesthetics focuses on the formal analysis of mainstream U.S. television and the production practices that support these aesthetics. While we will take an “introductory” look at television form, this course will use specific case studies—such as commercials, sitcoms, and music videos—to provide a deeper historical and production-based approach to a select few televisual genres. Students can select from a range of final projects, including a research project led by Dr. Ovalle, that will hone their research, analysis, and writing skills/methods.
