This unit of study is designed to draw together the key elements of theoretical and practical knowledge and skills that students have acquired in their media and communications studies. Using historical, cultural and industry-based frameworks and case studies, this unit of study will assist students to better understand the relationship between theory and practice in the field and assist them to become critical practitioners. By the end of the unit, students will be able to identify key debates around the relationship between theory and practice and demonstrate an awareness of how critical thinking and media production are capable of mutually informing each other in practice.
