Diploma in Media and Communication
- Concentrations in (1) Radio and TV Production, and (2) Advertising Creative Services

While the Diploma in Media and Communication course offers a broad-based curriculum covering the basic important areas of mass communication such as journalism, public relations and advertising, students want more. And so, from this year, two new concentrations will be offered.

These two new areas complement our existing modules that deal with both the practice and theory of Media and Communication.

Currently, our modules cover all the essential areas required to equip students for challenging careers in public relations, advertising, integrated communication and journalism.

Other modules tackle the business aspects, dealing with the business and marketing principles as well as law.  Technology modules add to the high-octane curriculum.

And now our two new concentrations offer a wider choice, allowing students to explore more areas of interest.  What if you are not a radio, TV or advertising creative type?  You are free to choose other modules from our large basket of electives.
