FAE Instructor
Social Media

This course is designed to improve your academic and language skills, with emphasis placed on thesis-driven writing.  To achieve this you will critically interact with, discuss and write about a wide range of texts (e.g. theological, scientific, psychological, literary, etc.) linked to the theme of social media.  Furthermore, throughout the course, you will learn to question both personal and societal assumptions about the positive and negative effects of social media.  For example, how does social media affect an individual's mental health?  Can social media change societal norms and values?  The course material will present ideas and research from differing perspectives on these topics and you will use these sources to form and argue your own ideas and opinions on these topics.
