COM 315 - Contemporary Media Issues


Students survey the United States’ 21st century media culture. We examine the political economy of U.S. media - news, information, and censorship - and explore the relationship between media and consumerism. We analyze issues of media and representation - race, class, and gender, as well as looking at research surrounding U.S. media’s portrayal of sex and violence. Students produce a variety of media, including weekly writing assignments, a short mini-DV film, and a final research project.
Prerequisites Must have 60 completed credits.
