1st Yr. Seminar: COMM 125X - (FYS,S) Mass Media, Stereotypes, & the Future of the American Male

3 cr.
Throughout this course, we will examine the powerful influences of mass media in the forms of advertising, film, TV, music, video games, and sports culture in creating and sustaining negative male stereotypes.  Further, this course will explore the implications of these media stereotypes in influencing negative behavior, impacting a wide range of areas from academics, career, family, and parenting.  Specific examples from a wide range of media sources will be viewed and discussed to clearly illustrate key theories from Accumulation to Modeling theory. Additionally, we will explore possible remedies, such as the positive attributes of Ignatian Identity and University Mission, to overcome these long-term destructive behaviors.
