Summer Online Course

IPP341 Media Literacy (Online), 1.00 unit, Dr. Richard Stewart, Associate Professor, Communications, Parish Administration

The Purpose of a course in Media Literacy is to develop critical eyes and ears to the wealth of media that is constantly around.  Thinking theologically about the wealth of available resources, the viewer is challenged to decide what is important for the use of our time and attention.  The study will be an interplay between entertainment environment, the culture of our society, and our faithful Christianity as we live out our theology in a public sphere.  Music, movies, television, and interactive media will be parts of the learning areas explored, Free elective.
