Learning outcomes

The course aims to explore the theoretical lines of communication and mass culture under a sociological perspective. Medias are portrayed as an inter-action place, because they actively take part in the construction of socially shared values. Therefore, the course will be structured around three axes: the structural characteristics of trans-medial communications; the effects of mass communications; and the connections between media and social systems in virtual perspectives.
