Living With, In, & As Media

Media Life is a course unlike any other I’ve taken. Not only does one learn about the media we deal with and use on a daily basis—it explains how we as individuals and as a society are media. That means how we use media, how we react to media, and how we criticize media is all part of media. This class debunks the myth that one can “get away” from media—it’s virtually inescapable! Even the Amish community, which shuns technological advancements like electronics, plays a large part in the media. This course helps one open their eyes to just what media is, how it affects daily life, social interactions, and how society as a whole has changed due to media. On the contrary, one learns about how people and society have changed media due to basic social needs. Overall, this course comes highly recommended by many, including myself. It’s the best course I’ve ever taken.
