From billboards to social media, people are exposed to a flood of persuasive messages as they go about their day. This class will draw on theories of communication and psychology to explain why, how, and when advertising and persuasive messages work. We will examine a variety of persuasive messaging, ranging from traditional advertising, sponsored content, and product placement, to political, health, and advocacy campaigns, to understand the effects such messages have on our attitudes and behaviors.
