CASA 552 - Advanced Media


Description
This course further develops the students’ critical reading skills of linguistically and conceptually complex texts in Arabic printed media. It does so by exposing the students to different text types on a variety of topics, many outside their respective immediate spheres of interest or specialization. It encourages learners to make inferences based on comprehension of the facts presented in a text through sensitizing them to the socio-cultural nuances embedded in the written message. The course also focuses on vocabulary building and trains learners to recognize the special stylistics properties of media language.
When Offered
Offered in spring.
(3 cr.)
