Telecommunications | Comparative Media Systems
T313 | 10739 | Beaudoin, C.


T313 is an elective course for Telecommunications majors. It meets
from 9:30-10:45 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 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.
