Welcome to the College of Mass Communication & Media Arts where the dedication and fire you have for media, creativity, and learning has no boundaries!

In our College you can develop your personal interest – whether you want to be behind a camera or in front of a microphone; whether you want to report news, create animation, or advertise on line; whether you want to advance to graduate degrees, become an industry manager, a cinema artist or a research scholar – our College is the place for you!

We provide the theoretical and hands-on experience that will allow you to pursue your interests.  Our award winning, internationally known faculty are passionate advocates to all who wish to learn. Their successes and expertise will help pave the way for you to find your own path. Their personal attention will challenge your abilities and enhance your classroom experience. You will have access to state of the art facilities, and what you learn outside of the classroom setting will also go a long way toward a successful career. Our alumni all over the world will open the doors to you for internships, externships, and future employment possibilities.
