Agricultural and Environmental Communication - England, Scotland
This course will engage students in concentrated study of selected prominent English food and agricultural issues and the ways through which mass media communicate with and educate the public about these issues. Of particular interest in the course are the ways in which British media both differ from and resemble U.S. media in their coverage of a wide range of social and technical issues associated with food and agriculture, such as land use issues, foot and mouth disease, organic food production, local food systems and dairy cattle diseases.
