New Communication Technologies in the U.S. 
Summer Program Application Instructions

Thank you for your interest in the New Communication Technologies in the U.S. course offered by the Department of Journalism and Technical Communcation at Colorado State University (CSU).  We are excited to welcome you as a student for the summer. 

Course Description

The seminar is a
broad-based survey of evolving and emergent communication technologies in the United States, including digital radio and television broadcasting, satellite communications, telephony, computer-mediated communication (the Internet), virtual reality, and other new technologies. Hardware, software, and social effects will be addressed in each area and emphasis will be placed on how these technologies influence U.S. culture. Communication theories relating to the development and diffusion of new technologies will be studied and assessed. Universal social issues such as equal access, censorship, and privacy that transcend media boundaries will also be examined. The training seminar will substantially increase the technological literacy of each student, especially in the areas of information and telecommunication technology.
Students will also gain hands-on practice with each of the technologies addressed in the course.

The program includes field trips to visit Colorado radio and television stations, two newspapers, a magazine, and a website design company -- in addition to several planned recreational outings.
