Telecommunications | Comparative Media Systems
T313 | 21435 | Beaudoin, C.


T313 is an elective course for Telecommunications majors. The
purpose of T313 is to introduce students to global media systems,
which are greatly influenced by the social, political,
philosophical, and economic structures of a country. The course will
involve four basic phases:  1) the examination of such structures;
2) the application of these structures to various media systems; 3)
the application of these structures to one global media system and
the group presentation of such; and 4) the application of these
structures to one global media system and the written presentation
of such. In the course, students will learn how to do the following:
1) understand different structures that can be used to evaluate
media systems; 2) apply these structures to different media systems;
and 3) compare and contrast media systems. Students are expected to
do the following: 1) attend class sessions; 2) read assigned
materials; 3) make presentations; 4) complete two exams; 5) complete
a research paper; and 6) complete other course assignments.
