If you have an interest in social media, television, radio, and print media – or are planning a career in these fields – consider taking Sociology of Mass Media SOC 421 (CRN # 30372) Online this summer.
It will provide an overview and analysis of sociological perspectives regarding the role of mass media in American society. We will examine the political economy of media, the role of news in democratic societies, media effects, and the role of technology in democracy.
I have created a video preview for the course linked below so you can know more about what is “in” the course. The video allows students to see what we will cover and hopefully entices those on the fence, but unsure, to enroll.

I have heard from many students that they loved this course and I think you will too. Please feel free to contact me with any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org) or send me a tweet (@DrCVaccaro).
