Great start for Mass Communication students  September 28, 2011
by


This book is a great way for Mass Communication students to begin learning about their field of study. I used this book a couple of years ago as a sop[censored]re at the University of Tennessee (Go Vols!!) and our communications cl[censored] are generally pretty difficult. This book is somewhat left-leaning like almost anything dealing with mass communications, but it's not to the point where there's an agenda. I give this book 4 stars.






Media and Culture : An Introduction to Mass Communication: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

It's no secret today's media landscape is evolving at a fast and furious pace and students are experiencing these developments firsthand. While students are familiar with and may be using the latest products and newest formats, they may not understand how the media has evolved to this point or what all these changes mean. This is where Media and Culturesteps in. The eighth edition pulls back the curtain and shows students how the media really works, giving students the deeper insight and context they need to become informed media critics.
