Journalism and Politics

This course critically examines contemporary trends in British mainstream and alternative media - from print and radio to television and online. Key issues to be explored include the social construction of news values, freedom of speech, globalisation of the news industry, the culture of journalism, the impact of postmodernism, the 'tabloidisation' of political and current affairs journalism, the ethics of war reporting, gender, the impact of new technologies, and satire.

This Short Course can be taken as a stand-alone course or it may be available as part of a Certificate of Higher Education.
