COMM 4430 - Design for Global Society

How do images communicate meaning in global society? In this course, students use a social semiotic approach to interpret images that permeate cultural boundaries and impact the way people think and behave. Visual and verbal assignments enforce students’ ability to communicate how images either instill or enforce values and propagate ideas; a user-research project allows students to gather data to test their own image hypotheses. Special emphasis will be placed on developing students’ cross-cultural awareness of images.

When Offered: Spring term odd-numbered years.

Cross Listed: Cross listed with COMM 6430; students cannot obtain credit for both courses.

Credit Hours: 4
