Another group of disciplines provide
knowledge and professional skills for writing about international, cultural, economic and domestic political issues. The acquisition of theoretical knowledge in the program goes hand in hand with the acquisition of practical journalistic skills. Courses are offered as well as practical classes related to media specifics - such as graphic design, radio and television programming, editing, TV and radio genres, online journalism. This will create highly qualified media professionals with specialised basic training and specific modern media skills who can find a broad-based career in the dynamic media market.
