The BA (Hons) in Communications and Media Studies is a three-year degree path preparing students for a wide range of careers in the media industry. The programme provides a detailed introduction to the latest practice in media, starting with film, TV and radio journalism and moving on to social media, new and convergent media such as web-radio, and other multi-platform formats.
The programme begins with a two-year diploma in Creative Media Production accredited by international education provider Pearson UK. Working in accordance with international media standards and practices, the course creates professionals able to analyse and think critically, opening work opportunities in media channels around the world.
Among the lecturers whom we are pleased to welcome are writer and journalist David Vaughan, and editor and news reporter Brian Kenety.
For Deputy Director Jeff Buehler, there could not be a better time to introduce the new programme: ‘This programme is different from others of its kind in Prague and Central Europe, as it addresses the need for creative and highly skilled communicators able to work in the emerging media of the future. And the need right now has never been greater,' he adds. 'We know that practical, forward-thinking programmes such as this one will produce exactly the sort of graduates employers want - able to shape existing media, but also to play an active and creative role in defining the media of the next generation.'
The degree programme is one of a wide range of diploma and degree courses in Business, Computing, Art and Design available at Prague College. For more information, please click here
