This course provides an introductory overview of contemporary mass media systems and an examination of the various factors — historical, economic, political, and cultural — that have shaped their development. The course begins with a description of present print and electronic media and examines their evolution. Attention is given throughout to the legal and ethical implications of mass communication systems and to comparisons between American media systems and those elsewhere in the world. Finally, it considers the probable future course of the media and examines possible alternatives.

This course is one of four prerequisites required for students to have completed before declaring a Communication Studies concentration.
