The value of involving students in research on the mass media is developed in this article, which describes the strategy of combining content and context analyses in student projects. Specifically designed for a sociology program with a concentration in communications and media in a college with a special "mission," the strategy of developing students' analytic, synthesis, and critical skills is applicable to many other programs and courses.
