FALL SEMESTER 2018
Overview & Learning Outcomes

In Part 2: Language and Mass Communication, we focus on the way language is used in mass media, including: newspapers, magazines, advertising, political campaigns, social media, and speeches. We consider how both the production and reception of texts is shaped by its medium of delivery.

Throughout this part of the course, we will:

  • Examine different forms of communication within the media.
  • Show an awareness of the potential for educational, political or ideological influence of the media.
  • Show the way mass media use language and image to inform, persuade, or entertain.
