New Core: Fulfills 3 credits in Area of Knowledge I. Service Learning Component.

Course Description: In this civic engagement and public value course students will explore, in the classroom and in service, how young people participate in their media environments. We will study the role of your people in meaning making and in the production of media. We will analyze how young people have used media as tools through which they can document their lives, concerns, and desires; as tools through which they can produce social change; and as tools through which they can put democracy into action. We will work directly with young urban producers to help them think through and engage in the process of using their voices as tools for changes and using media as tools of expression.
