GERMN 3620 German Media

4 hours


This course deals with contemporary themes that frequently appear in the various types of media in German-speaking countries. We will summarize, discuss and analyze newspaper and magazine articles, as well as radio and TV reports. Common themes include "Europe" and the European Union, the economic, political and social circumstances and culture/Culture in these countries, but other relevant themes may come up in the course of the semester. We also have the opportunity to compare German treatment of local and international themes with that found in U.S. media outlets.
