Visual Communication- Creative design has changed the way we communicate. In the modern world we are exposed to images that fill our daily lives. Those images are now the primary method used to transmit information. Students will learn the basics of design as well as camera and photography techniques. All participants will engage in a photojournalism assignment that will document the everyday lives of students.
Culture and Language- The power of language to reflect culture and influence the way we think was first proposed by the American linguist Edward Sapir. His early work in the field of culture and language inspired such greats as the writer George Orwell and the meta-linguist Noam Chomsky. This course on culture and language examines how we learn new skills and the verbal and non-verbal communications used in teaching and learning, how language impacts on our thought patterns, and how we acquire a second language.
Media and Technology- This course begins with a history of broadcasting from the early days of radio to the modern era of digital satellite technology. The world's technological capacity to receive information through one-way broadcast networks more than quadrupled during the two decades from 1986 to 2007, and this course examines the rise and rise of digital broadcasting and its impact on news gathering and propagation. Students will study main-stream and non-mainstream forms of media and the growing role of bloggers in disseminating key information.
