Fall 2014 - Undergraduate Course Descriptions
Description of Course:
Communication is an indispensable part of human life, and communication scholars have long examined the ways in which mass media, new media technology and ordinary people influence, and are influenced, by one another. This course will offer an overview of such influences, and students are expected to come away from the course with knowledge of how communication shapes our perception, how mass media affect our attitudes and behaviors, and how the rise of new media technology complicates our understanding of the relationship between mass media and ordinary people.
