    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Sociology 366- American media is an interdisciplinary approach to the ways in which mediated mass culture produces meaning in contemporary American society as examined through a variety of critical lenses such as political economy and sociocultural analyses of the organization of the mass media, media content, and audience reception studies of film, television, and/or music cultures. It was crosslisted with LIB 366, and is also offered every year. The requirement is that you must be of junior standing.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course were the papers because they challenged our minds yet taught us so much! He would give us papers about censorship in the United States and the ways that the government manipulates media and propaganda to suit their own personal agendas. When it comes to propaganda for purposes of war, for example, professional public relations firms can often be involved to help sell a war. The PR firms are indirectly contributing to the eventual unavoidable casualties. Media management may also be used to promote certain political policies and ideologies problematic when media reports on various issues do not attribute their sources properly

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be active in group discussions! It is the only way to truly get a firm understanding of the concepts. Be sure that you read and take notes. It may sound tedious, but in the end it work our for the better: for your understanding, and for valuable class points. It is very much worth it!
