Elective Course


This course provides students with insights into German society through its portrayal in various forms of media. Students will analyze major issues in German society over the past 60 years, such as the American influence on German society, the changing role of women, or the impact of immigrants on German society, by studying authentic German materials, such as advertisements, TV commercials, newspaper articles, songs, and films. A special focus will be on the role of language in media.
