PSYC 6761 - The Psychological Impact of Film and Television♦


(5 cr.) Film and television can have a major impact on society as they help us to understand our history, current culture, social norms, and personal interactions. In this course, students examine this impact on cognitions, attitudes, emotions, physiology, and behaviors. They explore and discuss the psychological impact of creative production elements, including cinematography, music, editing, timing, and sequencing; agenda setting, priming, and framing; propaganda; celebrities; the televising of sports; and portrayals and representations of various cultural groups and professions. Students also examine techniques used to develop media literacy, and they consider how film and television can elicit social action.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
