Summer 2018: courses to consider

Mass Media of Communication

This course presents an introduction to major mass media and their impact on American life.

Topics include First Amendment rights and responsibilities, techniques of persuasion and propaganda, the blurred line between entertainment and news, the role of journalists in war time, issues of credibility and trust and the impact of the "new media" - digital technology and the Internet - on the traditional forms of mass communication. Critical thinking and analysis of the images and sounds that so powerfully shape the public mind will be emphasized. UC/CSU transferrable.
