COMS101
Media and Society
Description
COMS101 explores the relationship between society and media - including social media, print, broadcasting, and all kinds of online spaces. It asks how our understandings of the world and people around us are mediated, how media have shaped society, and how society is reflected and produced through media. We will explore topics like media audiences, technologies, ownership and work; the frames of representation, power, and identity; and analytical tools like semiotics, discourse, and narrative. COMS101 is a stage one course that does not require any prior media study, but it builds on everything you have ever watched, listened to, interacted with, and produced. This course has on-campus and distance options. It includes weekly written exercises and requires active in-class engagement on campus, or in the distance stream to develop core university skills and learn effectively from the teaching staff and from each other.

This course has been designed in cooperation with Ara Taiohi and Korowai Tupu and strongly reflects the Mana Taiohi principles that underpin professional youth work practice in Aotearoa. We will implement the participatory approach, common in the sector, to co-construct our understanding of youth identities and youth work practice.
