Critical media literacy is about learning how to critically engage with and make sense of the media. This course helps students develop the analytic tools needed to examine media content and make more informed choices as an active audience. Critical media literacy is grounded in social activism because it is inherently about making change. Studying media critically and learning how the media industries operate in the world often leads to changes in personal media consumption.

Students develop the critical skills to analyze deconstruct and reconstruct media messages. They will look “behind the scenes” to examine who owns produces and distributes the media as well as how media producers decide who is represented (and how they are represented) and who is left out. Course topics include media history “fake news ” social media data mining and media representations of politics the environment race gender sexuality class family and ability.
