Course Description

In the Information Age, media is everywhere. This course will help you make sense of it all, providing insight into the structure of media firms, the nature of their products and how they make money. Is media biased? Is consolidation of media companies bad for consumers? This course will address those questions as well as how the government affects the structure of media through policies such as net neutrality, copyright, TV regulation, and spectrum allocation.  This course will provide a general background on the research from economists on media and journalism. There will be a lot of economics and not too much math.  If you pass the final exam, you will earn our "Economics of the Media" certificate on your profile.

I work with this, but the professors managed to point us to interesting reading on the economic framework to analyze what happens in media markets. Quick and invaluable.
