YTMN-4113 Media Culture and Adolescence
This course will provide information and learning experiences for students in the areas of adolescent spirituality, media influence, and overall cultural influences that affect the lives of adolescents. The course will focus on how a biblically-grounded spirituality can provide answers to the issues that adolescents face in our culture today. Fowler-s Stages of Faith and research from The National Study of Youth and Religion will be used as a backdrop along with scripture to develop a working profile of adolescent spirituality. The use of audio and video media as well as the special moral problems of media and the effects media has on adolescents will be examined. This course is normally offered in the fall semester.
