Prerequisite: consent of department. Each course is offered for one-third of a semester. Three hours of lecture and six hours of laboratory weekly, depending on topics. Topics carry from semester to semester. Individual course numbers may not be repeated.

This class addresses three questions about the role of the media in the world today: How does the media shape the modern world? What is the role of media in the shaping of the modern world? How do different genres (specifically, films, music, and documentaries) shape our understanding of the modern world?
The broad ranging questions (outlined above) are related to student learning outcomes through the development of competencies (Knowledge, Skills and Attitude). These competencies will derive from Lectures: Providing students with an introduction to the field of “International Communication” (through lectures) focused on Europe. Textual Analysis: Focused on specific media texts (relating to film, music, video games, sports, advertising and documentaries) students will develop a competency in “reading” such texts using the theoretical language of International Communication. Workshop: Students will take part in group discussion (inclusive of in-class writing assignments) that focuses on one or more of the media identified above. Research or Creative Paper: Students will develop a research or creative competency through working one an in-depth project.

The University of New Orleans International Summer School program has a mandatory class attendance policy. All students are required to attend class for all morning classes and any required afternoon and/or weekend fields trips and lectures. No unexcused absences are allowed. However, LFU students who have to miss a UNO class due to LFU examinations in the first two weeks of our program, can receive one excused absence for this. Any further unexcused absences will result in an academic penalty. Each faculty member determines the penalty for missed classes. Most professors deduct a letter grade for each additional missed class day. For details, please refer to your course syllabi, which will be distributed on the first day of class.
