Mass Comms & Media Studies Assignment 2 – Mass Communication Theory Literature Review
Your final research paper for this class must be related to mass communication theory. For this assignment, you will conduct a relevant literature review to discover the mass communication theory that you will use in your final paper. In your literature review, you should also discuss the pros and the cons of each resource against the other resources you include.
Begin by using the university library’s Encyclopedia of Communication Theory to investigate whether any of these mass communication theories relates to your paper’s research question.
Once you have reviewed the theories, select one mass communication theory that appears to be related to your paper’s research question. (I will attach Assignment 1, it has my papers research question.)
Locate three academic journal articles about your theory. Find academic journal articles. You will need these journals for your final paper.
Based on what you learn, write a 2-page, double-spaced essay in which you explain how the mass communication theory that you have chosen relates to your final paper’s research question.
Do not merely summarize the three articles about the theory that you selected. Instead, synthesise what you learned by giving enough information about each article (e.g., its purpose, its study results, how it explains a mass communication behavior or media effect, etc.) so that readers will understand your argument for how/why using the article would inform and support your use of the theory in your final paper for this class. You will be graded on your argument, not on your ability to paraphrase what is written in the articles.
At the end of your essay, include a reference list for the three scholarly articles that you used to learn about the mass communication theory you chose. Format your references according to the American Psychological Association’s style rules.
Make sure you have a theory that supports your research or a theory that will help you build your research.
* Remember that when you cite a work that you include the author’s last name and the publication year within the body of your literature review.
* References: In your reference page, be sure that you indent the second line and any other line of each of your references. That’s proper APA format.
