Mass Communication in Higher Education
My thesis consist of two major components. The first is a literature review of collaborative media communities and the effects on college communities and organizations. The second is an analysis of Davidson College media platforms from surveys which collected data using qualtrics and how students utilize these avenues of communication. This information will inform my research. I hope to refine my understanding of the role mass media communication plays in college academic culture and cultivating community. Focusing on how social network theory effects a higher education model of learning and community.
