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 and books and moving through television, film and the most recent interactive apps, we will survey the filed of children's media. Students will have an opportunity to create in each genre using Adobe Spark 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 included in a portfolio, and be able to use Adobe Spark 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.
