  • Overview

    Practical - No portfolio required.
    Taking into account the massive expansion of media platforms, this module is about interacting with media in all its forms, and the channels through which public relations and advertising information flows to reach their audiences. We investigate a spectrum of media including on-line platforms, print, posters, broadcast and ambient. We evaluate channels, methods, purposes and relationships so students are familiar with new and traditional media practice, analyse their current effectiveness and audience appropriateness. Students will prepare material for on-line and traditional media, and will also themselves be the subject of a media process, in video interview and written/ visual form.
    Assessment: Media Training Exercise (50%) ; Campaign Presentation (40%). Class Participation(10%)
