MSS 231 - Media and Society
(3 cr.) The objectives for this course are twofold: to foster an understanding of the social context within which media professionals work and to provide an environment in which students develop analytical skills required for effective and ethical participation in our media-saturated culture as citizens and potential media professionals. Students create a mock proposal for a media project in which they address how different cultural, political, economic and technological structures create constraints and leave open the possibilities for media practitioners, users and audiences. They also work in teams to critique contemporary social media issues. Prerequisite: COM 120 or MSS 101; Every Year, Spring
