KCB307 Making Media Connections 1

This unit allows you to engage in public debates about the media, politics and popular culture, and to learn strategies for translating academic concepts into a public forum. It therefore encourages you to think critically about the relationship between academic and public discourse. As the unit is project-based, you will also learn project management strategies and how to work as part of a self-directed team. Issues surrounding 'The Media' are a common source of interest for the media itself and to the general public. Media and Communication students should be well-positioned to make an informed contribution to these debates but often lack the ability to communicate with a general audience. This unit will therefore assist you to become a visible part of the public discourse.
