Program Description

The Vocational Diploma in Journalism was proposed in the light of recent revolutionary developments in the fields of communication and information, and due to the constant need to qualify an outstanding generation of media graduates, capable of meeting changing and evolving job-market needs, as well as local and international competition. Journalism is, no doubt, a cornerstone of media studies, and is of immediate interest for mass communication graduates, since it is one of the most prominent arts of media that require skills in interpretation and fact-finding to present the causes of any issue or phenomenon to the audience. The Diploma, thus, aims to train a generation of highly-qualified journalists, capable of objectively tackling societal phenomena, upholding the ethics and principles of the profession. In addition, this Diploma provides the student with a venue to explore emerging types of journalism, such as electronic and investigative journalism. The Journalism Diploma at BAU is a one-year program that falls into two semesters. The diploma consists of 24 credit hours, which upon successful completion, grants the candidate a BAU Diploma in Journalism.
