Course description: What do TikTok, Superbowl ads, and political campaigns have to do with religion? Even when not explicitly mentioned, religion and religious themes saturate our public discourse. From the silver screen to the day’s headlines, religion impacts the way we understand and talk about our society. In this course, you’ll apply academic theories of communication and religion, including secularism and atheism, to make connections across the Internet and social media, journalism, marketing, politics, and film and television. Take a hands-on approach to understanding examples of communication and religion in your own life through collaborative discussions, rhetorical analysis, and a multimedia project. Explore how religion communicates your world in both expected and unexpected ways.
