Semester Hours: 3
A lecture-discussion course exploring the role of mass media in life and society that emphasizes the development of skills for critically evaluating both conventional wisdom and one’s own assumptions about the media process—the industry, its products, its consumers/audiences, technology, and the broader social world. This course provides accessible analyses that draw upon current media debates such as regulation of the Internet, concentration of media ownership, social stereotypes in the media, amateur media, and the growth of global media.

Pre-requisites: SOC 100 - Introduction to Sociology  or consent.

Offered: occasionally.
