CMM 226 - Introduction to Media Criticism (3)

While it is important to be knowledgeable about the various channels of media, it is just as valuable for students to understand the potential sociological and psychological impact the media has on the mass population. Introducing students to a variety of analytic methods will encourage students to think critically about the media. Basic semiotic, postmodern, psychoanalytical, Marxist, and feminist ideological methods will be applied to develop a cultured perspective of the media encoding process. Students will not only enhance their media literacy, but also become competent critical thinkers who are able to conduct research of the media and texts.
