COMM 229 - Foundations of Media Studies

(3 credits)
The primary objective of this course is to foster a broad understanding of the field, hone critical skills and increase understanding of the theoretical and philosophical discussions taking place in media studies. The course considers questions such as the interrelationships between production and consumption, the notion of what constitutes a “text,” and the ways in which social power shapes how we understand and experience media.
