Mass Media


The goal of this course is to help students become responsible consumers of the mass media by critically examining television, radio, film, and advertising. Students will study the operation of these media, the effect the media has on them as consumers, and the effect consumers can, or should have, on the media. Papers on these topics are required. Students will also learn the basics of video production and editing through projects such as narratives, documentaries, public service announcements, and/or news stories. Guest speakers in local media industries are invited to the class.
