Program Description:
Description
In this course we will discover how, why, and when humans claim, lose, or share power through symbolic exchanges. We will pay special attention to the media and its role in democratic processes. We will learn about the influences of the mass media, theories of media framing, the nature of news, recent trends and changes (rise of the Internet, social media, and partisan media), public opinion, perception, and culture. Three main topics will be discussed in significant details during the semester: Political Campaign Communication, Mass Media and Content, and Communication in Political Processes. The course aims to enrich students’ understanding and critical perspective on the political nature of events happening around them and their representation in the media.
