JRNL 7030 - Media Sociology uri icon



  • Examines a range of theories for how media messages and media institutions turn out the way they do. 'Media sociology' refers to theorizing about the media as the 'dependent variable;' even though many of the 'independent variables' explored are not narrowly sociological. It connects media actors, organizations, and institutions to sociological concepts such as socialization, interaction, roles, and structures. Same as APRD 7030.
