    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is designed to teach students to critically examine the impact of digital media and mediated messages on our everyday lives. Throughout the course we will explore the underlying power relationships of the media industry, the construction of media messages, and the influence of digital media on individuals, groups, and society.

    Course highlights:

    Every single day, we engage in some form of media. Whether we are using it to gain information or for entertainment, media is a prevalent part of our lives. While we understand how to use media in most cases in regards to its function, often times we fail to understand how to use it in terms of its effectiveness. Thus, considering the impact of our media use may also not be a part of our daily thought processes as we send and receive countless messages using digital media. This course focuses on exploring the conventions of the various types of digital media available to us and how we use them to achieve our goals. The course also takes into account the mass mediated messages that we receive. We will learn the concepts associated with digital and media which will help us to think more critically about the media we use through analysis, evaluation, and creation of mediated messages. The goals of this course will be met through interaction with digital media, personal reflection on media use, critical analysis of mediated messages, and how digital media can be used more effectively in our personal and professional lives.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Each week students will participate in online discussions with classmates, which are related to the week’s readings. These discussions replace the interactive dialogue that occurs in the traditional classroom setting. Each week, students’ initial discussion posts are due by 11:59 p.m. (in the time zone in which each student resides) on Day 3 (Thursday). Students will have until 11:59 p.m. on Day 7 (the following Monday) to make the required minimum number of response posts to classmates.
