Media, Journalism and Digital Cultures

Media, Journalism and Digital Culture students working on a project

Media and Journalism present to us much of what we know about the world. Some argue that we live as much through media as we live in media. Learn how they work from multiple perspectives, from the public to the private, on both local and global scales. Learn the connections and the dynamics in the context of today’s rapidly changing media landscape and to critically evaluate the constraints and opportunities offered by modern media institutions and information technologies.
