About the course

This course deals with media theory and analysis of the contemporary media landscape, with particular focus on digital and social media, as well as the relationships between the media and cultural, organisational, political and economic change in society. It further elaborates on how people use and engage with the media in different media practices and actions, through participation, making and activism.

The ethical and legal framework within which contemporary media operate is also addressed and discussed. The course includes a practical social media project with the aim of deepening the understanding of the relationship between theory and practice in today's digital media world.
