Communication Faculty - General Information

Faculty of Communication

It is observed that communication, which has a central importance in every part of human and social life, assumes the role of motor power of social change and transformation in parallel with the developments in information technologies. The fact that communication plays a leading role in shaping not only today but also the future in our world in the information age reveals how important and necessary communication education is.

Üsküdar University Faculty of Communication has undertaken the task of training qualified communicators with its well-trained academic staff, state-of-the-art physical facilities, and an education program worthy of its mission and vision.

Communication education given at Üsküdar University Faculty of Communication has a scientific character on one side and an artistic character on the other. While the Faculty of Communication trains journalists, television producers, filmmakers and new media professionals for the media sector, it also trains specialists with a predominant artistic side in areas such as animation, visual design and digital design. Fields such as advertising and public relations, which are within the scope of communication education, are also related to the scientific nature of communication on the one hand, and its artistic and design nature on the other.

Faculty of Communication Departments

In the academic year 2013-2014, Üsküdar University started with three departments: Communication Sciences, Advertising Design and Communication, and New Media. Üsküdar University Faculty of Communication continues its education with seven departments, namely Cartoon and Animation, Journalism, Visual Communication Design, Public Relations and Publicity, Radio Television and Cinema, Advertising, New Media and Communication.

Education in the Faculty of Communication

Education at Üsküdar University Faculty of Communication is completed in five years, one year of which is optional English preparatory, and four years of which is undergraduate. Students who do not want to take English preparation courses complete their undergraduate education in four years. However, it should not be forgotten that we live in a globalizing world and it has become a necessity to know at least one foreign language in the communication profession, as in other professions. Especially for those who choose communication as a profession, knowing at least a good level of English is of great importance in terms of continuing their profession. For this reason, we highly recommend that our students who cannot use English actively start their education with the English Preparatory Class, which is given at a highly qualified level at our university.
