Dual Degree Programme in Journalism and Media Studies
Applicant and Graduate Profiles. Career and Academic Opportunities
The Dual Degree Programme in Journalism and Media Studies is the ideal degree for talented students who are interested in and curious about the phenomenon of communication in its multiple facets. Students who start this course should be strongly motivated to learn about the society surrounding them and keen to tell others about it. Journalism means understanding the world and explaining it to others, giving them the keys which explain events.
The curriculum offers a multi-disciplinary and updated approach to different areas of communication, ranging from audience research to film theory, from video games to digital culture to the written and digital press. It will foster critical spirit, creativity and teamwork, and will encourage spaces for debate with academia and the professional world so that students can maintain a close link to the professional and research spheres.
Having Bachelor’s Degrees in Journalism and Media Studies opens up the possibility for graduates to enter postgraduate, Master’s and Doctorate programmes relating to journalism and audiovisual communication, as well as to social and juridical sciences and humanities.
University College Alberta Giménez (CESAG) offers Journalism and Media Studies students the chance to undertake extracurricular placements in companies during their course. These placements represent an excellent opportunity for students to apply their academic knowledge in a professional environment and for such companies to get to know them.
