This course asks how human beings can flourish (i.e. lead meaningful and purposeful lives) in the context of increasingly complex systems of digital media and information systems. We do so through the lens of virtue ethics, meaning that we place special emphasis on concepts like authenticity, wisdom, courage, and integrity. The course's capstone project asks students to develop a clear and well-informed ethical framework for the mass-mediated aspects of their personal, professional, and civic lives. Students are required to have taken two 500 level CMN courses (C-) to take this course, unless granted instructor permission.
