Curriculum

International Bachelor Communication and Media

Media, telecommunications, computer networks, and creative industries touch many aspects of daily lives and reach every corner of the world. They have had an increasing impact on political and cultural life, and on entire economies across the globe. The shift in our everyday experiences towards enhanced mediation has had enormous consequences. It has transformed international relations and business opportunities, but also citizenship and democracy, cognition and culture, as well as people's personal and working lives. Communication and Media has thus become a vital and rewarding field of study, that will help you understand contemporary global society and to function successfully within it.
