Specialization - New media
The development of new communication technologies has a significant impact on the process of social communication and requires the continuous acquisition of new skills and competencies that will be useful in numerous media and communication professions in various areas of social life (e.g. business, shaping information policy of public institutions, content creation for the new media). The new program offered by the Faculty of Political Science and Journalism addresses these challenges and allows students to gain knowledge and skills sought in the contemporary competitive labor market: local, regional as well as international.
