Subject Area: Media

Professional communicators are shaping our discourses all the time. This course helps you understand how these professionals work to change the ways we talk about the world around us. It introduces you to the communication and media tools most often used when changing existing discourses and building new ones. Drawing on the work of key discourse scholars, it also offers critical lenses for analysing discourses, especially ones that are part of promotional efforts in public relations and advertising.
