This course emphasizes the critical need for media literacy and an informed understanding of media industries. It is essential to select credible information when we are inundated with messages on a daily basis. It is also crucial to identify when stories and issues of importance are not reported or inadequately reported in the media and when it is up to us, as consumers of media, to create those stories and issues and bring them into the public domain.
