COMM 125 - News Literacy

3 credits

This course is designed to teach students to exercise their power as citizens by becoming perceptive news consumers. As we become our own editors, gatekeepers, and aggregators, we must FILTER the “blur” of information overload. Through critical-thinking skills, a grasp of the impact of technology on the production of information, and the practical application of the concept of filtering information that is made readily available to us by various news media, News Literacy students will learn how to find the reliable information they need to make decisions, take action, make judgements and responsibly share information.
