Representation of social groups in the media

This part of the course looks at how different social groups are represented by the media.

Such groups include:

  • gender
  • ethnicity
  • social class
  • age
  • disability
  • sexuality.

You need to consider how each group is represented, whether they are positive or negative, the impact these stereotypes may have and implications surrounding this and whether they are portrayed differently in various forms of media.
