Introduction to Media Studies W10 (4 units) This class enhances your knowledge of media's industrial and cultural functions by introducing you to key perspectives and methods of study that stress the impact of media systems and practices at both the societal and individual levels--and vice versa. To consider media's social, economic, and political significance, we'll investigate a number of ways of understanding its production, form, reception, and influence, being careful to recognize how these approaches relate to each other and to a wide array of diverse case studies.
