It introduces key concepts and theoretical approaches in media studies, as well as provides practicaltraining to develop key journalism skills. This approach ensures that students develop both the broad knowledge base and professional skills required for future careers in journalism, public relations and communications. The third edition is divided into five parts, with the focus becoming progressively broader from journalism and news writing, to the larger mediasphere, to the media industries themselves, to the social, cultural and technological contexts in which these industries function. This encourages studentsto follow the flow of information and ideas from news production through to dissemination and negotiation, revealing how important journalism and media studies are to each other.
