UNITY STAR: What's The Beat? Part 2 (DIV 570)

Monday, April 4, 2022 1 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Considered America’s fourth pillar of Democracy, the news media is a source of community knowledge and can be a catalyst for action and social change. How has news media changed since it’s institutionalized conception in the United States? How has society’s view of media changed over time and what are the factors and events that impacted this perception? How do the multiple news sources that we have available to us nowadays impact how our society engages and is informed about the world around them?

Part 2 will deal with news media in the digital age, Social media and media Literacy.

Must attend both sessions to receive the completion certificate.
