Internships are designed to integrate classroom study and supervised practical experience in a work setting. Each student is required to write a series of reports focusing on aspects of the work experience that are related to coursework in the Communications Department.

Assignments are available, depending on the number of credits granted (1-4). Students are expected to hold the common exam time (TR, 1240-2) open for occasional meetings. Before starting the internship, students must submit a written proposal to both the work supervisor and the faculty sponsor.

Additional Course Details: 

Communication and transportation technologies connected the world as never before in the past century. As people and ideas move with increasing speed, how are traditional notions of culture being reinforced or broken down? How do ideas about culture create and justify inequalities between different nationalities, socioeconomic classes, and racial and religious groups? How can we distinguish between mutually beneficial cultural exchange and exploitative forms of appropriation?  

This course uses theory and contemporary case studies from news, social media, and popular culture to shed light on ideas of culture and cultural difference from classical theories to contemporary ideas of global cosmopolitanism and hybridity. This course explores the political and economic consequences of mediated ideas of culture, including its relationship to race, class, and transnational inequities. We will examine how identity, social value, and inequality are constructed using ideas about culture and identify the new currency of cultural difference in global times.

Additional Course Details: 

There are few topics, beyond communication itself, which better reflect our interconnected humanity than “the environment.” Mediated environmental messages surround us, whether about expansive issues like climate change or the newest, organic or sustainable product. These mediated messages often come together or diverge around conceptualizations of our environment
hinging on risks and uncertainties about the fundamentals of contemporary society. This course will look at the study and practice of the environment and media through a range of concepts, ranging from the “sacrificial landscape” reflected in television shows such as the first season of HBO’s True Detective to the “growth machine,” as a persistent framework to understanding risk
amid the imperative of economic growth in contemporary capitalism.

CMN 696: Theorizing YouTube: How many YouTube videos have you watched today? How about videos on Instagram or TikTok? What about live streams on platforms like Twitch or Facebook? Digital video, much of it amateur or semi-professional, has come to dominate social media and the internet—accounting for everything from entertainment to political activism. YouTube, founded in 2005, began the transformation of the primarily text and image-based internet to a more video-heavy experience. This class is designed around studying the history and cultural impact of YouTube, as well as social media-based video more generally. We’ll study the history of YouTube, and immerse ourselves the present culture, forms, and genres of YouTube. We’ll look at the phenomenon of ‘YouTube stars’ and the emergence of influencer culture on the platform. We’ll study the growing body of scholarship and popular commentary and criticism of YouTube and related platforms. We’ll look at the debates around free speech and concerns over political extremism and conspiracy theories. YouTube will be our focal point through which we will examine
many of the larger topics related to video-based social media platforms: entertainment, identity, journalism, education, cultural production, fandom, politics, community, marketing, and public discourse. In addition to the expected components of a writing intensive class, students will also have the opportunity to use the modality of video to enhance their scholarship: curating, remixing, and even creating original critical video pieces.

Course Description - Mobile media are everywhere. Our lives revolve around portable communication devices. Smartphones, laptops, digital watches, earbuds are always within reach or literally attached to our bodies. How have these technologies changed the way we understand the world? The way we interact with others? The way we view ourselves? This course examines the concept of media mobility and the influence of mobile communication on social relationships, shared experiences, and cultural norms. Though smartphones have become virtually synonymous with mobile media, this course explores the deep history of mobile media, from religious totems and early writing systems to car radios and the first mobile phones. While considering the role of smartphones in contemporary life, this course looks at the broader significance of mobile media technologies and their influence on ideas about time, place, distance, presence, privacy, and authenticity.
