Media Life – Alexandra Corro

Having changed my major to Telecommunications at the beginning of the semester, I didn’t know what to expect. This is where Media Life comes into the picture. Seeing that I needed this course to fulfill the requirements for my major I expected it to be the usual introductory class where I’d be assigned busy work and be falling asleep every couple of minutes, but that was not the case. Media Life allowed our individual creativity and ideas flow with the class themes as well as with the assignments. The first day in that class made me see how we are affected by media and how we, as a society affect it. Media Life put us in a place where we were asked to look into our personal use of social media as well as when we’re not in the presence of it and how it changes us as a person. Professor Deuze allowed us to look into our use of media life with the help of examples that pertained to each week’s lesson. Through this course I was able to learn that we, as a society, are the largest contributors to media life. And without us, there would be no such thing.
