    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    CTVA 210 is a course that will challenge you, but will push you to do your best while learning all about Television and Film Aesthetics. Professor Halloran is very knowledgable and is enthusiastic to assist every student as best as he can. I recommend this class to those who need to fulfill their lower division CTVA requirement and to just about anyone who is passionate and seeking to learn about films.

    Course highlights:

    CTVA 210, Television and Film Aesthetics, is a course that explores the concept of form and content, aesthetics and meaning, and history and culture in film. You will be exposed to a variety of films, filmmakers, and film movements. You''ll learn about mise-en-scene, editing, sound, lighting, and cinematography. Plus, you'll watch a film at a every class session which is a great opportunity to apply what you are learning.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course it is a MUST that you read all of the assigned material. Quizzes are heavily based on the readings. Make it a habit to review the readings more than once. For example, take the time to read the readings thoroughly once. By the second time you read, make sure to take notes on all the important details. Something that will boost your grade is attending as many of the Cinematheques because they will serve as extra credit. A final paper is also required, make sure to start early and do not procrastinate. Also, attend Professor Halloran's office hours. He is more than happy to answer your questions. Lastly and most importantly, have fun and enjoy!

    Pretty easy, overall.

    This is a pretty easy course. What's better than watching movies every week!

    Other than watching movies every week, the professor was really nice and chill. Her quizzes are online, she gives extra credit opportunities, and her final is online and recommended us to take it in groups.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't buy the book because you don't need it.
