New Course from CMCI: Media Activism and Public Engagement

Students sitting in classroomLearn how to change the world in a new spring 2017 course offered online by CU Boulder’s College of Media, Communication and Information, in partnership with the Division of Continuing Education.

Media Activism and Public Engagement challenges students to analyze the theories and practices of activism in both old and new media on a local, national and global scale. By exploring the role of media in social change, students will become more savvy media practitioners and display their knowledge by creating a ready-to-deploy media intervention through collaboration with a social-change agent. While this class is open to both undergraduate and graduate students, undergraduate Media Studies majors may take this class for the following emphases:

  • Media and Politics
  • Multimedia Practice: Design and Production
  • Media Leadership: Management and Entrepreneurship
  • Media Technology and Society
  • Global and International Media

The course will be taught by Nathan Schneider, scholar in residence of media studies and author two books, God in Proof: The Story of a Search from the Ancients to the Internet and Thank You, Anarchy: Notes from the Occupy Apocalypse.
