Very informative and interesting. Learned some great new concepts and how different types of violence impact others.

Excellent course! Great opportunity to express yourself with a video in the final peer reviewed assignment!

From the lesson
Media Portrayal of Violence
In this module we explore how violence is represented in films in terms of character and narrative and we consider how violence is reported in the news, specifically discussing desensitization.
