The Media Studies (Audiovisual Communication) are a very recent university specialty in Spain. It responds to the birth of an economic sector with a spectacular growth and future: communication by film, television (conventional, digital, satellite, cable), internet, telephony, video games and other varieties which are being shaped at a surprising speed and require qualified professionals in all aspects of this area, from market research and audiences to the creation of products which are able to meet these demands.
We are not only talking about cinema, the most consolidated audiovisual medium, but also about a wide range of products which break into the market with unusual agility and adaptation to consumers’ tastes. On the one hand, this is the education of the future, and on the other, it is also traditional: mobile telephony has solely existed for ten years, yet the products used to nurture it are hardly in the process of configuration. At the same time, cinema or television, with its classic formats, have demonstrated their ability to create activity, to change the behavior of society and to decisively influence people’s leisure.
CESAG is the first university in the Balearic Islands to offer this degree. It responds to the audiovisual communication market, which is constantly expanding and requires more and better professionals to meet their needs. From the Internet to fiction scripts, from cinema to virtual reality, this university education which until now was only available in the Peninsula, is finally accessible in the Balearics, with syllabus, equipment and facilities similar to the rest of Spain.
