Mass Media Studies and the Humanities: An Interdisciplinary Experiment.
Marsden, Michael T.; And Others
This report on a curriculum project incorporating the study of the humanities and mass media is presented in four chapters. The first chapter is an overview and describes the three components of the curriculum project: (1) a new course entitled "Television as Popular Culture," (2) a team-taught course on media theory entitled "The Electric Media," and (3) a coordinated quarter of mass media studies requiring students to complete two core courses, to participate in a capstone seminar, and to complete individual research projects. The second and third chapters are in-depth evaluations of the individual components of the project and an assessment of their impact upon one university's educational mission. The fourth chapter reflects on the overall experience of the project and suggests possible curricular directions for studies in mass media and the humanities. The questionnaires used for course evaluation, tables of technical factor analyses, and bibliographies of materials for course development are appended. (AEA)
