The impact of mainstream media and online outlets on politics and the governing process. Topics include the role of social media, online advertising, comedy shows, and the changing ways that voters receive information.
As a result of completing this course, students will be able to: I. Pick up a newspaper, watch a TV report or commercial, read a blog post or twitter feed and understand how that information was produced, why it was produced, and what impact it will have. 2. Produce an in-depth analysis of a political or public policy issue from an academic, nonpartisan perspective. The emphasis will be on training students to master wide-ranging research, rigorous thought and lucid writing.

This should be a three credit course, the cross listed political science course is a three credit course. I am unsure when it got transferred to being a four credit course but this was never the intention of the department. The credits need to be adjusted back to three credits.
