COM 401 - CUE: Ways of Seeing

Course unit(s): 1
Prerequisite(s): COM 301 Media Theory & Methods  
This seminar is the required culminating course for the Media & Communication major. Building on the major’s other required courses, Ways of Seeing is designed to challenge the binary between theory and practice, through the idea of media analysis through media making. Bi-weekly units are organized around a mode of “seeing” (in a deliberately capacious sense of that word) like “text” or “image.” For each unit, provocative and often theoretical readings are paired with limited media-making training appropriate to that mode. Students grapple with theory in the process of making, which in turn informs their critical thinking.
Seniors only
