Who is this class for: This course is for everyone with an interest in “right” and “wrong” behaviour in the media landscape. This includes media professionals, students, teachers, researchers and basically everyone who has an opinion on this topic (and let’s be honest: who hasn’t?) and is interested to put this opinion in a broader theoretical perspective. The course does not require any prior knowledge.
