As social media becomes ever more common, how is this impacting traditional news sources, such as television and newspapers? Who now controls the news agenda since horizontal news gathering and dissemination has become ever more easy? This course will explore how the digital age is fundamentally challenging the relationship between the informers and the informed, between those who wish to shape the news agenda, and those who actually do.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
