The program is designed to provide you with a varied professional education in the basics of journalism, media production and public relations, and a specialisation sequence in one or two of those disciplines. These studies in professional understanding, insight and skills are complemented by courses offering a broader framework of theories and issues in communication and in-depth knowledge and skills in a specific humanities discipline: Asian Media and Culture; Cinema; Communication Business and Politics; and Literature and Philosophy.
