Communication is highly integral to our living experience. It is through communication that we share ideas and meanings that help us define our identity and sense of community. At the professional level, communication is a full-fledged industry that harnesses both talent and technology to enhance engagement with our world in social, economic, cultural and political domains. From analog press and broadcast outlets to digital web-based media, communication has experienced dramatic transitions that continue to shape our physical and virtual world.
The Department of Mass Communication’s two concentrations in Journalism and Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC) seek to engage students with the latest media industry trends through both on-campus and field learning and training. Our program’s focal areas in digital storytelling, multiplatform communications, multimedia journalism, social media, infographics and social analytics are meant to create full alignment with fast-changing markets.
The Mass Communication at American University of Sharjah (AUS) seeks to provide students with a balanced foundation of professional competencies involving digital storytelling, social media, integrated communications and academic knowledge of the discipline of mass communication in general and the department’s specific professional concentrations: Journalism and Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC) in particular.
