We have some of the best-equipped media and communication labs, including more than 22 high-end I-Mac computers, many Multimedia PCs, professional TV cameras and state-of-the-art audio and visual recording, editing and post-production equipment.

The faculty has two departments: Journalism and Communication and Film and Broadcast Production. Our staff is highly experienced and dedicated. The faculty offers certificate, diploma and degree programmes in Mass Communication and in Film Production and Animation. We therefore provide students with the best possible resources for training in Journalism (Print and Broadcast), Multimedia and Animation and TV and Radio Production.

 

From September this year (2012), we shall offer two more stand-alone degree programmes: Bachelor of Journalism (B. Journ) and Bachelor of Applied Communication (B.A.C). The B.A.C degree will have two specializations, namely Corporate Communication and Health and Development Communication.
