Credits: 3

Examines and deconstructs advertising’s messages and myths from diverse and theoretical perspectives encouraging students to think differently about advertising’s manipulative effect not only on the individual psyche but also on society as a whole.

May be applied to the following curricular field concentrations: communications, media, and technology; organizational dynamics; American studies; gender studies; humanities; and arts and cultural traditions.
