Popular Culture (2012-2013)
The Popular Culture Certificate is an interdisciplinary program designed to explore both the context and the influence of popular culture on contemporary society. Artifacts of popular culture—such as advertising, technology, music, film, television, and sports—will be critically examined from multiple perspectives (e.g. historical, musical, sociological). The Popular Culture Certificate is an excellent opportunity for professional development, and most courses are transferable to UC and CSU institutions.
