Welcome to COMM 2302. Media Interpretation and Criticism

In this course, you will develop an understanding of and ability to apply communication theories regarding aesthetics, interpretation, and criticism. We will investigate a range of media including print, film, television, and video games  From theories about semiotics and narrative structure to ideas about representation and postmodernism, we will sample a range of perspectives for interpreting deeper-level meanings. Throughout the semester, we will explore technical aspects of media production such as visualization, graphic design, and video editing. Though our focus is primarily on interpretation and analysis,  students who aspire to a career in the media industry can use this course to build their production skills.

This is a required core course for Communication majors and it is listed in Trinity’s Common Curriculum within “Understanding the Arts and Literature – Visual Arts, Music, Performance and Aesthetic Production.”
