AMST 201: Youth Culture

March 05 at 12:00 AM - April 04, 2015 at 12:00 AM

The overall objective of this course is to explore a variety of issues pertinent to the experiences of American youth and the culture that largely informs their identities. This course takes a thematic view of American youth culture posed by some of the following questions: What role do media play in shaping the identities and experiences and values of young people? What were the experiences of previous generations of young people? How are young people portrayed and represented in popular culture? What does education mean and how should it be channeled in a contemporary youth culture environment? How should we address the issues raised by the contemporary communication environment, and by the realities that young people face in an increasingly virtual environment? These are just some of the questions that drive the content of this digital, multimedia-based course, that places an emphasis on having fun and engaging with your peers as we address a demographic (YOU!) that is rarely placed at the center of analysis. No textbook required!
