JMC 3700 INTRODUCTION TO VISUAL COMMUNICATION AND CULTURE (3 credits)
This course will introduce students to 'the visual,' both in production and critique. This course provides students the opportunity to further their own understanding of what "visual culture" is and how they both can critically create and consume the various products of that culture. In addition, this course will help students create, develop, and cultivate the knowledge base they will need to successfully complete the Visual Communication and Culture minor.
Distribution: Humanities and Fine Arts General Education course
