COMM 25100 - Communication & Social Protest

Course Credit: 1
Maximum Credit: 0
(COMS)
COMMUNICATION & SOCIAL PROTEST This course focuses on how social justice movements–both in the U.S. and globally, use communication to further their cause. In the class, we will examine how power and privilege lead to inequities that social justice movements attempt to remedy; how establishment figures, institutions, and sometimes other social movements use their resources and overcome obstacles and achieve their goals. Students will also gain practical skills to help them better analyze messages about social justice and to inform and advocate on its behalf.
