Studying and working in the media requires an acute awareness of the way media and culture shape people’s understanding of - and responses to - their world. From the daily routines to the grand designs of contemporary society – from the election of a president to the fall of a government – it’s almost impossible to make sense of national or world events without understanding the role media and culture play.
