EARTS 6006 Power of the Image: Media Literacy

This course examines the nature and origins of images, the visual representation of minority groups in the mass media, and the use of images to create a sense of place, tell one's story and affirm personal/cultural identity. Students develop sophistication about the power, sources and uses of imagery, and engage in the creative process using drawing, computer-generated imagery, and video as art forms.
