This course examines children’s media from social, cultural, and historical perspectives, with a focus on media produced for children ages 0–13. We will look at the ideas and themes represented in children's media and use our understanding of this genre to create our own examples. Starting with picture books and moving through television, film and the most recent interactive apps, we will survey the field of children's media. Students will have an opportunity to create in each genre using Adobe Express and participate in multiple workshops of their creative output. By the end of the course, students will have an understanding of children as media consumers; be able to identify the historical roots of children's media and current trends; have one or two examples of creative work or proposals for creative work that could be included in a portfolio, and be able to use Adobe Express to create across media.

This is a hybrid seminar/production course as may be counted as either designation toward a student's Media Studies MA or Media Management MS degree. Media Studies courses are open to all graduate students. Undergraduate Juniors and Seniors with permission from the instructor and BA/MA Media studies students should email mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu for access.
Please note for the Fall 2021 semester, this course is running online asynchronously.
