We spend hundreds, even thousands, of hours a week engaging with a wide range of media sources. We all experience a near-constant barrage of incoming information. Combine that with the human brain’s reaction to stress or fear, and conditions are ripe for the spread of misinformation.

In this course, you will learn from media and misinformation experts about the falsehoods, slander, prejudice, and bad ideas that fall under the umbrella terms of disinformation and misinformation. All classes meet on Fridays and begin at 3:30 P.M.
