As the subject group of Media and Communication in the College of Humanities and law, we offer comprehensive exposure and exploration in the ever-changing media landscape and communication field. We focus on anticipating the future needs of these areas. We constantly update our curriculum and introduce new programmes that strive for the needs of the constantly evolving media platforms and means of communication.

We understand that innovation happens when theory interacts with practice, and people learn best by doing. Our teaching staffs are outstanding industry experts with solid academic credentials who are passionate about passing their experiences and expertise to the next generations. We encourage lively exchanges of ideas between the teachers and students and create relationships that often extend from the classroom to the profession.

The programme aims to develop the study of media and cultural institutions, ideologies and policies as part of social and economic reality. Its design has a specific rationale, beginning from a semester which aims to provide a comprehensive foundation in research methods and critical approaches to media and cultural studies, through another semester which provides a grounding in the media (including social media) and then visual and socio-cultural content, giving graduates the possibility of undergoing further study in media and cultural studies, communication studies, creative industries, arts and cultural management.
