Hours & Credits
Students have the opportunity in this module to explore different media, their
constituent parts and the interconnectedness between these. Media studied may
include: film, television, advertising, public relations, the press and interactive media
(games; interactive advertising; social media).
Students are also introduced to different ownership models; how this shapes different
media markets; the consequences of these for content; and the positive or negative
implications of these for society.
The module then goes on to explore how governments and the industries themselves
may seek to limit the negative effects of these while encouraging the positive
contributions different media can make to a society. This may take the form of laws
governing the media or professional codes of conduct.
The module concludes with an overview of recent trends with the development of new
technologies; the convergence of media industries and professions; and the challenges
this poses for managing media organisations.
