MENT 4424:Uses and Effects of Mass Media

3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: COMM 2230 ; Must be a declared major in the School of Communication and Media.
This course examines research findings and commentary about mass media impact and use in the United States. Through the lens of media theory, students explore what mass media “do” to users and what users “do” with the mass media, and why these effects and uses are thought to occur. This course is useful for students interested in graduate work in mass media, professional media careers, media literacy, or more conscientious use of mass media and awareness of possible effects on themselves or others.
