2 The BA (Hons) Journalism, Media and Culture programme provides 100 credits of CORE modules and credits of OPTIONAL modules. You can select all your modules for the year (1 credits) from the COM modules provided by the programme. Alternatively, you can choose ONE optional module worth credits from outside the programme. Please note that other Schools within the University sometimes offer 10 credit modules or credit modules which run across both semesters. If you choose COM1036 as your optional module, it will produce a credit balance of 60 credits in S1 and 60 credits in S2 (60/60). Balances of 60/60, 50/70 or 70/50 are acceptable. Any other balance is not acceptable. Information on COM modules is provided in this section as well as a sample module choice form. Descriptions of COM modules and some outside modules are also available at Information on modules outside the programme will be available at the Module Fair on Wednesday 30th September. Modular timetables for the full academic year (both semesters) should be checked on the following web-page: Please remember that academic and administrative staff are always available to help if you have any queries, so please do not hesitate to contact us if necessary. 2

4 Module Code: COM 1023 Module Title: Module Leaders: Credits value: Semester: 1 Introduction to Media Studies James Ash credits The module will discuss the role the media plays in shaping culture, identity and interpersonal communications. Drawing on work which links audiences and users with genres and industries, the module will examine how the media operate in relation to local and international as well as economic and political spheres. The module will also introduce students to the range of media forms (e.g. radio, television, print media, photography and the visual, popular music, music videos, and the new computer-based information technologies). The module will outline and define the features that mark these mass media. In addition, the module outlines some key critical frameworks through which we make sense of the mass media. Using a range of analytic frameworks, the module examines issues related to power, identity and representation and assesses their significance for our understanding of the vast array of media material that surrounds us. The module encourages students to undertake close readings of a range of specific media texts and practices as well as understand how producers and consumers make sense of contemporary mass media. Method of assessment: 1. Critical Review (1,000 words) 25% 2. Media Analysis (1,000 words) 25% 3. Timed Essay (2,000 words) 50% Module Code: COM 1025 Module Title: Module Leaders: Credits value: Semester: 1 Introduction to Research Methods To be confirmed credits This module aims to provide an understanding of a diverse range of research methods and the methodological questions that underpin their application in communication and media research. The module, and others that follow (principally COM69, Researching Media, Communication and Cultural Studies II), provide a guide to research methods and their respective strengths and weaknesses. The module is founded on the idea that the best way for students to understand the utility (and limitations) of social science and humanities research methods is by doing research themselves. In addition to providing an introduction to the library and to essential University study skills, the module aims to demonstrate: the distinctions between quantitative and qualitative research practices, methods and methodologies; that the values and beliefs of the researcher intrude into all types of research meaning that social research can never be completely value-free; 4

5 that every method has its strengths and limitations; that there is no essential link between the study of particular research objects (whether a medium, an issue or phenomena) and research methods; that research methods are used without guarantees; that research methods - even those from contrasting philosophical and historical traditions can often be used in combination. Method of assessment: Library research skills task: 10% Fieldwork analysis: 45% Essay: 45% Module Code: COM 1026 Module Title: Module Leader: Credits value: Semester: 2 Introduction to Social and Cultural Studies To be confirmed credits This module introduces students to the contours of contemporary Cultural Studies within a social context. It explores the history, politics and ethics of Cultural Studies as an interdisciplinary field of study and invites students to consider the critical implications of some of its most dynamic contemporary debates. The module examines some of the key ways that culture is understood, analysed and mobilised within the field of Cultural Studies through its analysis of a diverse range of cultural, media, social and political sites. We pay particular attention to the links among culture, power, identity, subjectivity and embodiment as well as to how culture is differentially constituted through intersections with race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity and class in the context of post-colonialism, subcultures, globalisation, consumerism, celebrity culture, self-representation and digital lifestyles. Assessment: 1500 word task: 40% 2500 word essay: 60% Module code: COM 1030 Module title: Introduction to Journalism Practice Module leader: Katy McDonald Credits value: credits Semester: 2 This module is aimed at students who are new to the field of writing for the media and communications industries, and encourages students to write and report for a range of audiences in 5

6 print, broadcast, online and social media. Students are asked to critically consider, discuss and analyse writing and reading in relation to genre, convention, audience, grammar and form, and ethics. The module is structured around story assignments, which change each year. Some examples: 1. Local reports: Writing for audiences and knowing constituencies. Students select a community, or locality, or subculture, or other constituency within the first two weeks of the start of the module, and provide TWO reports over the course of the semester. Both reports are written for a local publication of their choice, with one written for print (700 words) and one for online (300 words). Candidates must ensure each report is written and formatted to the conventions of their intended medium, with a good idea of the requirements of their audience. 2. Review: Students identify an online publication which carries reviews, and write a 500-word review of a cultural object of their choice e.g. a play, concert, book or restaurant and promote the review on social media, considering the style, formatting and audience expectations of their chosen publication, along with the tools and techniques of good review writing. 3. Portfolio and essay: students submit a portfolio of work, produced either in the module or independently, which comprises at least three different articles e.g. a news report for print, a news report for online, a review or a feature for broadcast. They then write a critical analysis of the choices they made when producing these articles referring to the tools, techniques and issues discussed in class, and citing authors from inside and outside the recommended reading list in a 1,0-word essay. Only the essay is marked, and although the portfolio is used only for reference, an essay submitted without a portfolio will fail. 4. In-session, non-assessed work: a) Students have regular exercises and assignments on readings, grammar, stylistics and style on class days. b) They are given reports and make critical observations in relation to criteria associated with ethics, audience, and genre. c) Students are encouraged to write a weekly post for a class blog, which is accessible only to students and teachers on COM1030. Types of post range from critical analysis of news reports and commentary on issues relating to the media, to different styles of writing for the media (e.g. news, review and feature writing). Feedback is given by student peers and teachers on the module. d) Students are encouraged weekly to consume journalism from a variety of sources and quizzed informally (non-assessed) on their knowledge of that week s main news topics. Assessment: 1. Two news reports written for different media (700 and 300 words) 30% 2. Review for online magazine (500 words) plus tweet/fb post summarising it 30% 3. Portfolio and essay of practice and methodology (1,0 words) 40% Module Code: COM 1036 Module Title: Journalism: Pasts, present and future Module Leader: Murray Dick Credits value: credits Semester: 2 6

7 This module is aimed at students who are new to the field of journalism studies; and who wish to develop a more critically engaged understanding of journalism; where it comes from, and what purpose journalists serve (and journalism serves) in wider society. Students will critically engage with the elements of journalism and its core values, for example: What is journalism, and why and how did it emerge as we recognise it today? What is 'freedom of the press', where does the idea come from, and why does it matter? What is 'impartiality', and does it matter to the practice of journalism? Is it being supplanted by 'transparency' in the network age? Is the press truly a 'fourth estate', or is it merely a cypher for elite corporate and political interests? The module will be structured around a range of key themes in the 'narrative arc' of journalism studies. Key readings from the field will be introduced in order to tease out competing (and overlapping) discourses on journalism's pasts, present and future, allowing students to make comparative assessments of their respective merits Assessment: 1. Critical synopsis of two competing/opposing theories ( words). 30% 2. Critical essay (3000 words). 70% Module Code: COM 1037 Module Title: Module Leader: Credits value: Semester: 1 Introduction to Multimedia Technologies for Film and Journalism Chris Falzon credits This module introduces the core practical (and theoretical) elements of multimedia practice. It provides the opportunity through group workshop tuition sessions for students to become familiar with the fundamentals of this multimedia production. Weekly combined workshop and lectures sessions provide a familiar setting for critical practice. A subject-related topic is researched within a teamwork structure, and group multimedia production is undertaken to capture and present this topic. Assessment: 1. Oral group presentation 25% 2. Multimedia group project 50% 3. Reflective Report (1,000 words) 25% 7

8 CHOOSING A MODULE OUTSIDE MEDIA, COMMUNICATION AND CULTURAL STUDIES We recommend that you attend the Module Fair on Wednesday 30 th September for further information on modules which are not listed in your degree regulations. When you are fully registered as a student of Newcastle University, you will be able to check module details and look at the modules that other Schools offer in the Module Catalogue, available under the academic information tab on the Student Services home page. For example, if you are interested in Psychology, you can search the database using the code PSY and this will produce a list of all modules with this code. Clicking on the underscored title will give you access to the module description. The description will include core information such as the credit value of the module and whether it runs in semester 1, semester 2 or across both semesters. It will indicate whether you need a specific pre-requisite in order to take the module. As well as a description of the module, it will also state whether any student can take the module or if it is limited to certain degree programmes. If you want to take a module in an outside subject you may need to go to the particular School that runs the module for further details and permission, e.g. School of Modern Languages. YOU NEED TO CHECK THAT THE OUTSIDE MODULE DOES NOT CLASH WITH YOUR COM MODULES We have no control over outside modules and sometimes their timetable may clash with the module on your programme. If they clash you may not be able to take the optional module you have chosen. When you are fully registered as a student of Newcastle University, you will be able to check module timetable slots on the University Timetable page, available at: Full advice on how to understand your timetable is available at: You can search for individual module timetable slots either by module code or title, or you can search for your programme timetable using the programme code: P500/1 (Stage 1, Journalism, Media and Culture) Please note that if you search by programme code, this will produce a timetable which shows every module linked with the programme, some of which you will not be registered for. You only need to attend the modules for which you are registered! WHEN YOU HAVE SELECTED YOUR MODULES, RETURN YOUR COMPLETED MODULE SELECTION FORM TO THE PROGRAMME SECRETARY, IN THE SCHOOL OF ARTS AND CULTURES OFFICE, ARMSTRONG BUILDING.
