Media and Society (HUC130) for Spring I, will be taught in two formats: as part of a Learning Community entitiled Truth, Lies, and Videotape (that also includes English Comp, Research Paper, and the Art of Film), and as a stand-alone course. In the Learning Community, there is a central, unified theme, and certain projects, such as the mid-term paper, are shared among the courses. The course covers media effects on society (and vice-versa), media and money, media conglomerates, media convergence, propaganda, and pornography. Students who take this course can take this course as part of the Mass Communication Concentration in the Communication Studies (A.A.) major.
