JAN 046 - Can Comedy Save Our Democracy? Understanding and Making News Satire

Lower division
Full credit
MTuWTh, 2:45 PM - 5:20 PM

Satire = making fun of something to expose its truth. 

This course provides instruction in analyzing and creating satirical broadcast news and digital media. It teaches you how to decode and challenge it as an engaged audience member, as well as prepare it for presentation. Our goal in this course will be to define this genre, explore its evolution, identify its public impact and importance, determine whether it’s an agent of journalistic information-dissemination, suggest improvements in areas such as ethics and diversity, and gain experience in creating news satire.
