MED 306 - MEDIA LITERACY
Focuses on the informational, commercial and entertainment media forms and the degree to which such media are ubiquitous and their content constitutes what people in contemporary society, individually and collectively, say they "know". Course examines the ways in which media organizations promote the public perception and consumption of their products as "unmediated" information sources; students develop critical skills to examine sources, values, intentions, profit-orientation, and social implications of such media.
