Sociology (Media) with Professional Development

Add media studies to your study of sociology and you’ll be able to explore and specialise in areas such as the social impact of the new media, the Internet and other information and communications technologies, media discourse, media policy and regulation. This course is designed to give you a contemporary understanding of the social and intellectual dimensions of the media and communications industries. The focus of study is upon all aspects of societal relations: its personal, social and cultural dimensions.
