Program Degree and Majors

The program degree is Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication Technology. Three majors are offered:

  1. Integrated Communication Studies
  2. Multimedia Journalism
  3. Radio and Television Broadcasting

Program Philosophy

The goal of the program is to prepare quality students who will graduate with the new knowledge in mass communication technology. The program's students will be practiced in the use of new technologies, so that the graduated students will be able to respond to the job market not only in the official sector, but also in the private sector.

In modern times, mass communication projects have developed alongside the expansion of business and industry. Each project in the course of development, has needed authoritative sources of advice and know-how on mass communication technologies, but the available resources have not kept pace with demand.

Changing global business environment and changing international political economy are the key factors for the increasing recognition of the important role of mass communication subjects. The Thai constitution has provided many classification policies for the radio and television industries. As a result, the demand for professionals in each field of mass communication technologies will increase. Our reviewed program (reviewed 2005) can help not only to reduce the excess demand, but also to prepare a pool of graduates ready to facilitate the three most important fields of mass communication resources for people everywhere.
