SCOM 357. Youth, Communication and Culture

Crosslisted: SMAD 357 

Grounded in the cultural communication perspective, the course examines the relationship among communication, youth and popular culture. Defining youth as children, tweens, teens and college-aged young people, this course focuses on communication issues such as how youth are represented in various forms of popular culture; how they are defined by corporate discourse; how young people make sense of popular culture artifacts; and how they become cultural communicators as well as consumers.
