This course introduces students to the practical processes of research design and practice through an exploration of case studies in audience research, media impacts and the symbolic dimensions of everyday life. The case studies will give students the opportunity to engage critically in evaluating research design, methodology and ethical issues in particular areas of communication study, with an eye to developing a proposal for their own original theses (in CMNS 499).
60 credits of 100-level or higher coursework and CMNS 261, CMNS 262, and CMNS 360
CMNS 462 is an approved Experiential course for Cap Core requirements.
