Dive deeper into the world that surrounds you in Popular Culture! Through hands-on activities, students analyze video games, music, film, television, social media, and more. They investigate how popular culture both reflects and shapes societal values, beliefs, and behaviors. Additionally, they explore the marketing strategies and economic forces driving cultural phenomena. This course empowers learners to become informed consumers and creators of popular culture while developing essential analytical, creative, and technical abilities.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
