COM 651 Media and Communication Policy in a Digitized World 3.0 Credits

Understanding the foundations of the policies, laws and regulations that govern media and communication has become a necessity in the everyday lives of consumers and citizens and crucial knowledge for communication professionals. Issues like ‘Net neutrality’, ‘breaking up big tech’, ‘algorithmic privacy breaches’ and ‘trust in (public) media’ reflect the increasingly complex communications patterns and industries. This course offers an overview of media and communication policy, law and regulation from a critical perspective. We interrogate the regulatory and judicial systems that administer and interpret media policies, and the public policy apparatus those relationships create. Drawing on academic research and case studies, we assess American media law and policy in light of ‘the public interest’.
