MCO 445 Civic Media Co-Lab

3 Credit(s) W-III
This project-based studio course builds from concepts introduced in MCO332 and asks students to investigate the creation and use of civic media in society through analytical, participatory, and collaborative approaches. Emphasis is placed on co-design and the application of technology to civic problems to provide students with the tools they need to grapple with contemporary and civic challenges. Students will work with a community partner to create civic media projects that meet an identified real-world community need over the course of the semester. Prerequisites: W-II,  COM332 or MCO332. Not open to students who have received credit for COM445. Three lecture hours per week.
