Advertising and Society -- Designed to foster a critical understanding of advertising and promotion as an institution, and its role in communication, society, culture, and our economy. Students develop a framework in which to understand the continuing dialogue between supporters and critics, and confront issues related to the institution's ethical conduct, regulatory issues, and social responsibility.
Telenovelas, Culture, and Society -- Examination of the connections between media, culture, and society as participants study the world's most watched television genre: the Latin American telenovela.
