About this course

CO-121: Introduction to Mass Communications is offered online by Albertus Magnus College. How many years does the average American spend watching television during his/her life and is this time well spent? What prophecies did Marshall McLuhan make in 1965 that are becoming true today? Have books been replaced and forgotten? What does a film producer really do? What is a gatekeeper? How has the "profit motive" changed the definition of news? Does violent television programming have any affect upon society? How many ads does the average American find herself/himself exposed to each day? Are the mass media really electing the President of the United States? These are just a few of the questions we'll explore in this lively course, which surveys communication theory, process, practice and ethics. Apart from serving as an introduction to the discipline of Communications, this course is highly recommended for those students not completing the program of study in Communications. Twice weekly attendance is acheived by timely submission of assignments.
