Program description

AUP students

Technology has rendered distance nearly irrelevant, and the Internet has revolutionized our world so that rapid transformations sweep societies, different modes of media converge, new cultural spaces and practices emerge, and belief structures shift. Our curriculum will help you find the tools to understand and play an active role in the massive trends and rifts that are appearing in societies across the globe. Its interdisciplinary approach draws on the strength of diverse fields of study, so that you will be exposed to both theory and practice, with a strong grounding in the historical roots of communications in all its forms. You will be provided with, as well as the practical skills and analytical abilities to understand and participate in the complex dynamics of communication at the global, local, and individual levels.
