DESCRIPTION
This unit introduces students to a range of approaches from media and cultural studies to examine the relationship between youth and the media. The unit is structured around three modules. The first examines theoretical approaches to youth and media. The second focuses on the representation of youth in news media and popular culture. The third module examines current issues such as the take-up of new media by youth.

Practical journalistic exercises also give students a critical understanding of the forces operating within these three areas and the impact of youth on a range of media forms and industries including, news, soap opera, popular music, film, reality TV, blogs, mobile phones, video gaming, and the Internet.
