This service-learning course offers students the opportunity to see digital media through the eyes of people who work for non-profits and other philanthropic/social justice organizations, which may use digital media to promote their mission, to attract volunteers, and/or to raise money. In this course, you’ll work with a local non-profit organization to gain hands-on experience with digital and social media as it relates to the organization’s goals. In addition, you will practice thinking strategically about 21st-century communications and get some practice in various digital media forms, including blogs, web pages, podcasts, videos and social media platforms.
