The average American child spends roughly six hours a day with some
form of mass media. This seminar will focus on psychological and
social scientific research to explore the role of the mass media in
children’s socialization.  The emphasis will be on how children’s
cognitive development, emotional development, and social development
interact with media habits and influence. Major theoretical
perspectives will be covered along with the research findings in
these areas. The course will also explore the public policy
implications of this research.
