The Department of Media and Communication deals with communication. Communication is the act of giving and receiving messages, and therefore, it is a social phenomenon that plays the most pivotal role in the information society of today.
Examples of communication that we experience on a daily basis occur between the media and user, including the broadcaster and viewer, newspaper and reader, internet and user, advertiser and consumer, language and language user, etc. In general, communication is not only a very complex social phenomenon, but ranges vastly as well, and therefore it is categorized into various sub-fields. Thus, this major is sub-divided into four programs such as the Communication and Speech Program, Advertising and PR Program, Video and Broadcast Program, and the Information and New Media Program.
The common goal for each program is to train students in the basic principles of the respective communication phenomenon and then to foster experts in their fields who can utilize these basic principles in everyday life.
