Media has changed dramatically over the past 20 years, and understanding the contemporary platforms, players and audience is vital if you want to get your voice heard. If you’re looking to find your way into a television station, newsroom, or even just log on to your own blog, understanding what piques the public interest and how news should be delivered will get your words, spoken or written, to have the most impact possible. Whether you consider yourself the next Joseph Pulitzer, Brian Henderson or Annabel Crabb, taking a media studies course will help you to cut your teeth with the fourth estate, understand the publicity machine and get some valuable feedback along the way.
