USJ Communication and Media Programme Catalog 2015
Communication and Media at USJ focuses on how people use messages to generate meanings, places our students at the forefront of the contempo- rary information society, develops knowledge and ability to communicate. Our professors, all with a good international recognition, are able to prepare students to receive a solid foundation in learning, exploring the existence, the functions of different fields and the expertise of such advanced tools. Today, subjects are explained efficiently on a way to be used according to a real life exposure, and so, the fundamental software and hardware for digital media production and a set of methods to plan, organize and execute hypermedia are developed at USJ.
Communication and Media seeks diverse aspects of life and work, combined practice and theory, providing a platform for either employment or further study – a new master in CM is under development.
The programme offers the tools to understand and to evaluate the ongoing transformation of media culture and its impact on culture, politics and everyday life. Nowadays, all social and cultural issues are shaped by a mix of different media and by the ongoing innovation of new media forms and technologies. It also takes television as a starting point to map the concep- tual, social and cultural challenges that come with digital, mobile and social media. Students will have the ability to communicate effectively because the programme has a profound effect on their personally, professionally and ethical practices.
