Greetings Students
Welcome to COMS 265 - Mass Communication

In this course, students examine the ways in which books, newspapers, magazines, film, radio, television, music, the Internet, public relations, and advertising and more have influenced, and continue to influence, society. The communication process, mass communication theory, and media regulation are discussed with particular attention paid to communication ethics.

 

The evolution of media, especially the converging of media formats will be explored throughout the course.

 

The textbook for the class is "Converging Media 6th Ed" by Pavlik & McIntosh
