The Department of New Media offers an undergraduate program in English that aims to explore the impact of new media technologies on cultural and social developments. Its curriculum is designed to foster an interdisciplinary approach to the contemporary media landscape where ‘old’ and emergent forms of media continuously converge and evolve. Drawing on intersecting perspectives that fall under the broad category of social sciences, students will learn to critically engage with issues that arise from new media developments and become aware of their roles as both consumers and producers of media.
Our mission is to prepare students to become competent and responsible media professionals on both local and global platforms. Students will have the opportunity to conduct collaborative work with academic staff and learn to become creative thinkers through hands-on projects. They will also have the opportunity to broaden their personal interests and pursue their professional goals through internship. Upon completion of their degrees, graduates will be qualified to practice in a variety of fields, including advertising, journalism, web design, digital media production, and creative arts.
