Department of Broadcast Communication 

Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Media Arts and Studies

 

The Broadcast Media Arts and Studies (BMAS) program is a product of changes in the practice, forms, technology, relationship, and ecosystems in the media industry over the last few decades, and the implementation of the K-12 curriculum. It seeks to provide students with the requisite training to become future broadcast practitioners and scholars who are ethical, critical, creative, and visionary.

Students in the BA BMAS program will graduate with skills to assess and contribute to media’s role in current and emerging societies. Together, students and instructors study the critical lenses and creative skills that allow them to engage with the history and languages of broadcast media, the relationships and experiences of broadcast media audiences, and the conventions and practices of broadcast media creators. BA BMAS students are envisioned to contribute new perspectives to the discipline, update the broadcast media practice, produce research, and develop proficiencies in these and allied areas of broadcast media. 

The undergraduate program considers the obligation of the Broadcast Communication Department as the only Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Center of Excellence in Broadcasting to maintain a cutting-edge curriculum to serve as model for other Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) offering Broadcasting and other programs in related fields.

 

The Department has also been active in spearheading alternative broadcasting models through the radio station DZUP 1602 AM.

Department of Journalism

Bachelor of Arts in Journalism

 

The Journalism program, the oldest in the college, gives students a strong grounding in the arts and sciences and equips them with skills currently required by the profession. Students are trained to be socially responsible and critical professionals – aware of the power and the responsibilities of the press, committed to defend press freedom, and living up to the highest professional and ethical standards. 

 

The Department of Journalism has pioneered several journalism courses like Journalism Ethics, Environmental Reporting, Business Reporting, Online Journalism, and Investigative Journalism. Its curriculum, comparable to many journalism programs abroad, is used as a pattern by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) in its design for journalism programs. CHED named the Journalism program a Center of Excellence in Journalism for the 1999-2000 and March 2013-May 2014 terms.
