SOCS 201: Intro to Cultural Theory

This course provides an introduction to cultural theory as it has evolved to reach its present prominence in visual practice. Through a study of a number of the more influential schools of thought which have come to us from the social sciences-structuralism, semiotics, Marxism, psychoanalysis, postmodernism, etc.-and the social contexts which shape them, students will develop a better understanding of contemporary thinking in design, media and visual art.

Priority is given to ANIM, CRCP, ILUS, IMED, ISMA, PHOT and VIAR students. Students outside of the registration priority group may register/waitlist for this course as of the registration rule release date.
