This subject explores the role of the citizen communicator by examining the institutions which structure our social world, and the social arenas in which civic participation occurs. Students are introduced to political, legal, economic and media institutions and concepts in national and, to a lesser extent, global contexts. There is a particular emphasis on the skills of academic literacy, reflective practice, collaboration and cooperative peer review. Assessment ranges from traditional essay forms to the creation of a 'new society' simulation, accompanied by a video production and exegesis.
