In this course, students will: decode, evaluate and compare data presented in a variety of U.S. and German information sources; analyze how media and its message are presented in both countries; and, critically reflect upon the media message and their understanding of it. This course will consider printed, audio, and visual information as text which will be analyzed for its information content, its social, and cultural bias, as well any possible intended manipulation of the reader’s/listener’s/viewer’s perspective. Throughout this course, the interpretation of the medium will consistently focus attention on the Franciscan heritage concern which embraces a broad sense of tradition. Media has been a means of communication since humans existed. The study of media, in its diverse forms (visual, audio or printed) always had and has a subtext grounded in a culture and heritage which evolved through the ages This course will be taught in English.
