COMM 150H - Media, Self and the World (3 credits)


(=COMM 150 ) (Prereq: Honors student or permission of the instructor) Examines the many ways media systems and mediated communication shape our understanding of ourselves and our world. How various media (e.g., television, internet, newspapers) interact and deliver content (e.g., entertainment, news, advertising) that influences the “real world” are examined. Also looks at how new technologies allow easier direct access to content. Special attention is given to how students can apply media literacy skills to their academic and personal lives. F, S, Su.
