COMM 465

Communication and Popular Culture

Popular culture is so much a part of our daily lives that it is all but invisible. To a great extent, popular culture defines the texture of our lives. Popular images not only mediate and define reality, but they also implicitly assert a set of values. Introduces students to a number of concepts and challenges that arise in the study of U.S. popular culture. Drawing on a variety of theories and perspectives, students will critically examine the role of popular culture within the context of current social, political, and economic realities in the United States.

Note: Matriculated students MUST register using their MyCsusm portal.
