Media Literacy (online)


This course focuses on the importance of accessing, deconstructing, analyzing and evaluating the media. Students look at the media through an historical lens in order to better understand cultural values presented. Course explores the impact of the media on daily lives and questions what is in the frame, how it is constructed, as well as what may have intentionally or unintentionally left out of view. Through lectures, group discussions, assignments and media presentations, students develop an understanding of visual language and the ability to decode the symbols transmitted via the media. Please note: Course takes place completely online in an asynchronous environment. Material will be uploaded weekly on Monday evenings, 7:00pm (Pacific Time). Login information will be forwarded following student registration. Enrollment deadline: Monday, 2/3/14.
