MEDIA STUDIES & MASS COMMUNICATION
Welcome to the Department of Media Studies and Mass Communication!
The department of Media Studies and Mass Communication has been envisioned as a center of excellence for promoting media and mass communication studies in Pakistan. It is one of the first departments in a private sector charted university in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. Media Studies and Mass Communications is more than just a department. It is a community of faculty, staff and students who share a passion for all actions in media, communication and Society. We aim to accomplish this in a manner that can be useful for the media professionals, academic scholars, researchers, NGOs, policy makers and regulators.
We are also keen on fostering relations with media industries and the community at large. Our students are systematically exposed to new trends in the market through professionals’ classroom visits, field trips to media sites and a comprehensive internship program. We have embarked on upgrading our curriculum to match accelerating trends in the global communications landscape by emphasizing digital and social practices, mobile and multimedia journalism, and storytelling and integrated marketing communication perspectives. The Department also worked on developing the practical training systems through establishing studios equipped with top-notch equipment’s and technologies.
I believe that professional training and education should be well-equipped to face the contemporary challenges. Hence, the department prepares students not only to become professionals but also to be leaders in the field of mass communication. We very much care about engaging our students with professional media practices by motivating them to participate in national and international competitions.
I encourage you to contact us with any questions, requests for more information and/or personalized tours of our facilities.
