Study Contemporary British Media in London!
This program will challenge students to drop their media assumptions based primarily on the American model and to explore how media systems in the United Kingdom conceptualize their audience, sustain their operations, and offer content in an increasingly global communications environment. Participants will explore the role of media in interaction with other British cultural, political, and economic institutions and will examine the broad range of British Media, including broadband, satellite, television, radio, newspaper, magazines, books, advertising, public relations, broadband, and films. Students will visit several media locations to supplement classroom instruction.
