Do you enjoy stories? Love watching drama? When was the last time you binged on Netflix? Was there something more than just an escape from the reality? Well, in this seminar, we will embark on a journey here in the U.S. and around the world to explore how writers, producers, directors, and researchers have been using the power of storytelling in popular media to save lives and change norms. By the end of the semester, you will have developed a deeper understanding of the entertainment-education communication strategy for health promotion and social change. Note: All course materials are available on UBLearns, no textbook required.

  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.
