Filling a void in the media theory, methods, and literacy market, Becoming a Critic is an introduction to current and approachable theory and research on media content. By addressing undergraduate readers as student scholars, the reader is taught to objectively assess the content and implications of media messages – active learning!

It includes traditional media content in addition to new and emerging genres such as reality television, sports, drama, comedy, music, social networking and more.
