Intro to Mass Communication (APA2009.01)

Joe Donahue

This course looks to equip students with the critical thinking skills to become savvy media consumers. We will explore examples drawn from everyday life to consider the media industry from the inside out and, in doing so, discover the many dimensions of mass communication that operate in our society. Students will learn media studies concepts with a focus on history and media effects on individuals and society. We will discuss not only what the media is, but what they are responsible for and their role in democracy both in the U.S. and around the world.
