About The Class

The "Communications and Technology" course taught in the department of Journalism and Media Studies at Lehman College / City University of New York (CUNY) examines communications technology from a media perspective.

These areas may include TV, interactive software, digital video, web design and mobile applications. The course also examines print and graphic communications, photography, digital imaging, deep fakes, NFTs, broadcast journalism, and interactive digital media. Students will also develop an awareness of related environmental and societal issues in the various communications technology fields. Students get access to prototyping tools and create mobile Apps that aim to find solutions to societal problems.
