T314 Course Description:  This course examines the effects of mass
media on human cognitions, attitudes, and behaviors, at the
individual, group, and organizational and societal levels.  To
understand the processes by which mass media influence human
cognition at the individual and aggregate levels, a variety of
empirical social science research will be explored.  The history and
evolution of mass media theory and research will also be covered.

This class accommodates approximately 76 students and is taught in a
combination of lecture and seminar format.  There is no separate
discussion section, so students are expected to participate during
class time.

The prerequisite for the course is T205, or consent of the
instructor.  There is one required textbook for this course.
Additional readings will also be posted on the library’s electronic
reserve.
