In this class, we will take a deep dive into the study of plot and story structure via the HBO show The Last of Us. We will take apart each episode to study how it exemplifies the dynamics of great plotting. Through an extended, entertaining, and impassioned discussion of the power of storytelling, we will acquire the tools to learn how to rigorously analyze plot in any story. Students will need personal access to HBO or another streaming platform to view The Last of Us.
