    Our world is saturated with information and much of it is inaccurate. This class will teach you to identify bad information and show you how to keep it from spreading. It will also teach you about the role and responsibility of journalism in the world and why it should matter to you. This class will ask questions about where information originates and the motivations of those producing, spreading and sharing it. It will push you to consider your media diet and how it affects your life and your understanding of the world.

      Course Description
    The three credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps students with common learning outcomes focused on fundamental expectations for critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and oral communication, and learning at a university, all within topic focused subject matter. The Seminars provide students with an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 199 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.
