Cognition and Media

This course will introduce important theories on how people process information from the media and how media affects individuals. Based on empirical social science research, this course will examine the effects of mass media on user’s cognition, attitude, and behaviour. While the focus of the course will be on how media, both traditional and new media, affects individual users, the effects of mass media on groups and society will also be discussed.
