Course Information

DM6033 Media Organizations

Credits: 3.00

This course is a general orientation to a broad range of media-producing organization types, from pirate radio stations and ad-hoc collectives to major corporations. Each organization has specific advantages and disadvantages, and each has a specific range of work types it can support effectively. The ultimate purpose of the course is to provide a “big-picture” orientation to the different environments in which media get made and distributed and to help students clarify goals and needs so they can make wiser choices about directing their studies and work toward the right career.
