Select a mass mediated text, research it, and write a four- to six-page double-spaced (1,000-1,500 word)
critical analysis of the text that utilizes any of the 12 theoretical perspectives explored in class (Marxist,
organizational, pragmatic, rhetorical, cultural, psychoanalytic, feminist, queer, reception, sociological, erotic,
or ecological analysis). You may choose 1-3 different media studies theories that are appropriate for
analyzing your chosen media text. Papers that are substantially short will be penalized.

Papers are evaluated and assigned a numerical score based on their overall effectiveness in accomplishing
the assigned task. All aspects of your paper are considered, including quality of thesis claim, depth of analysis
and argumentation, application of required media studies theories, and quality of writing and organization.
The check boxes are intended to provide general guidance on the effectiveness of various aspects of your paper
while recognizing that no checklist can adequately address the specifics of individual papers. Papers are
evaluated as a whole and must excel in all areas to score at the A or A+ level. Two boxes checked in the same
category indicate the assessment lies between the descriptions or contains attributes of each.
