Upon completion of this unit, students will be able to:
demonstrate an advanced and appropriately abstract knowledge of: the relationship between media, politics and society in both familiar and unfamiliar socio-historical contexts; and the social and political significance of mass media;
appropriately and accurately apply core concepts to reflect critically upon and analyse the interactions between mass media, politics and society;
independently develop, through synthesising and rigorously evaluating evidence from a wide range of sources, complex and theoretically-informed arguments about politics and mass media and communicate these in a compelling manner; and
expertly research and critically analyse in two cogently and creatively written essays, the relationship between media, politics and society in two different contexts.
