Typically the people who study mass communication are on the other side of the fence: they’re studying the media not creating it. Graduate students, researchers, professors, etc. Most, if not all of you are currently involved (and will graduate doing this) in creating media: press releases, news articles, web content, radio, TV, print, PR, etc. You know-or are learning-how to create and shape messages–creating what others are studying and trying to understand.
This class provides you with an opportunity to learn how and why what you do works, as well as uncover the different roles media (as well as those in media) play.
