CMM 290: Intro to Social Media

This semester I'm taking a Social Media course that's being offered for the first time at the University of Hartford. I'm really excited about it, as I've been leaning more and more towards a career path based around social media. One of our assignments is to start a blog in which we will be required to post in at least twice a week for the rest of the semester.

I think I'll take this opportunity to delve a little deeper into the areas of study that I haven't had courses in lately, specifically with my Gender Studies minor. While I'll still be focusing on communications, it'll be a good way to challenge myself to encompass all of my academic interests. For instance, instead of just blogging about sexual politics, I could blog about how people are using social media to communicate about sexual politics and the ways in which the messages are interpreted via CMC.

Anyway, this is the first post of many. All of the posts for the course will be tagged with #cmm290.
Here we go!

  1. Wow, a course in social media? That is so cool! I wish I'd had the opportunity to take something like that when I was an undergraduate (wow, saying that makes me feel REALLY old lol). I look forward to keeping up with your blog, especially regarding sexual politics. Hope your semester is off to a great start!

    1. Thanks, Christina! It's an awesome course so far! I love the opportunity to blog about my interests. I've been so busy lately but this gives me an excuse to blog since it's homework! This semester has been great, but I'm not taking any gender studies courses so I've been missing that. Especially your class! Hope yours is going well, too!
