This major provides you with an understanding of the impact of the nexus between technology, media and the law on contemporary society. It explores key media issues like media regulation, value of free speech, defamation, privacy, intellectual property, and legal restrictions on media. The major will also analyse the international media policies and new media technologies and their impact on society and the law.
Taught in collaboration between Macquarie Law School, the Faculty of Science and Engineering, and the Department of Media, Music, Communications and Cultural Studies, you will be able to combine units from science, media and law to gain a broader understanding of law in the media and technology spheres.
You will develop the graduate capabilities in demand in workplaces that deal with new and emerging technologies, and will be equipped to address the contemporary issues being faced in legal policy development.
Legal issues related to the regulation of media and technology will be put in a social and cultural context to understand better how and why to shape business decisions.
A Macquarie course can set your dream career in motion.
