Literacy introduces you to ways of understanding visual images in art,
photography, film, and digital media. You will learn about the aesthetics and
production of visual images, immerse yourself in dimensions of seeing, and come
to appreciate the influences on visual symbols and communication. The concepts
you learn in this course you will put into action by creating public service
announcement, short informational films, photo essays and other visual media
that will make a positive difference for the non-profit that extends far beyond
the American University Campus.
