Enter the powerful world of water by viewing engaging documentaries, animations and short films about water issues. We will explore approaches that range from humorous to hard-hitting political pieces, poetic to personal, all created in order to help people understand complex environmental issues. During the course, you will develop concepts and approaches for creating media that can help expand water awareness, including here at Ithaca College.

The only media experience needed is your own film-tv-internet viewing.

Difference isn’t the problem. Discourse is! CMST assistant professor Christopher House will offer "CLTC 10000:01 Introduction to Communication and Culture" as an online course during Winter Session 2016 (Jan 11- Jan 21).

In this course, students explore and interrogate the ways that communication (e.g., language, media, and discourse) establishes and enacts identity power dynamics. In thinking about communication as global citizens, our online discussions of, for example, movies like Crash (Paul Haggis, 2004) and Snowpiercer (Joon-ho bong, 2013) help us to understand how social identities are constructed, institutionalized, changed, contested and/or appropriated by various social groups.

This course fulfills Liberal Arts general education and ICC Diversity requirements. To enroll, search course number CLTC 10000 for Winter 2016 term on Homerconnect.

TVR 46000-61 Senior Media Seminar, a 3-credit online course examining the representation of youth in American culture and the role of media in their lives (film, TV, social media, etc.), will be offered as an online two-week course this winter (January 11-22, 2016).

Ithaca College will implement a co-curricular transcript for all students, beginning during the Fall 2016 semester.

These activities help students achieve excellence in their chosen fields and can demonstrate how they have learned to share the responsibilities of citizenship and service in the global community.
