Introduction

The Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Media Studies is a 3-year, internationally accredited program offering a modern and interdisciplinary education combining standard Journalism school courses with courses in media studies, film studies, and marketing/public relations. You will earn a globally recognized American and European B.A. degree.

The Media and Culture concentration provides students with important practical skills and a foundational conceptual understanding of media history and the current media environment. On the skills development side, Media and Culture fosters broader programs focused on the development of high-level English language writing and speaking/presentation skills. In addition to these, the Media and Culture concentration focuses on providing students with strong analytic and critical thinking skills about historical and contemporary media environments—media literacy—and research skills.

This concentration is aimed at understanding the complexities of the contemporary media landscape. You will learn advanced media theories to gain a deeper understanding of:

  • popular culture

  • film theory and history

  • history of photography

You will also gain an overall understanding of what it means to realize the potential power of images and language.

Prague was at the crossroads of a divided Europe during the Cold War, and now instead the city has become an open and welcoming cosmopolitan capital in New Europe for all nationalities with several domestic (in English-language or Czech) and international media organizations based here. AAU’s student body includes students from many countries across Europe and Eurasia, the Americas, the Middle East, etc. with an equally diverse faculty with various areas of substantial expertise.

Beyond the classroom, students can create and host internet radio programs on Soundbricks, contribute to or produce the bi-annual student magazine Lennon Wall, or join any number of student clubs concerned with environmental or other social issues. The Career Center also regularly invites media professionals to meet our students helping to ensure numerous internship opportunities in the Czech Republic or abroad.

By taking advantage of these opportunities students can finish the degree in Journalism & Media Studies having gained a solid background combining academic rigor and practical experience, and an appropriate internship in a desired field for the future.
