DESCRIPTION

Students examine the basic conflicts of principle and practice confronting media producers, journalists, public relations practitioners and other media practitioners across multiple media platforms from traditional newspapers and broadcast to digital and convergent media. Students will be exposed to a broad range of media which may include news media, advertising, public relations, documentary, social media and gaming. Students will engage with ethical practice from the different perspectives of audience, industry and media producer. Students will analyse the competing claims of privacy and the public's right-to-know; the justification of censorship against the demands of freedom of expression; the reporting and representation of minorities; sexism; racism; ageism; and the issue of commercial imperatives and ethical practice in a global media sphere.
