Create a BA in Media and Communication at AUB
AUB currently offers a diploma in Media Communication and an MA in Media Studies. However, AUB is one of very few English universities in Lebanon that doesn’t offer a BA in Media Communication, despite numerous requests do start such a program by students, alumni, and the news and communication industry.
Media Communication is a booming field and its valuable and transferable skills are fundamental today both for the job market and for society--just witness the role of digial and social media in the Arab revolts. In addition, more and more students are seeking a BA in Media Communication and we hope that AUB will offer us this greatly needed degree soon, especially that the many media courses are already being offered, enough to create a strong BA degree. Check out the 22 already existing undergraduate courses:
When students come to AUB, they expect nothing less than the best education in the region, and they expect specialties and degrees relevant to today's job market and society's needs. A BA in Media Communication fits these expectations.
If you agree and support the implementation of a BA in Media and Communication at AUB, please sign this petition. We intend to deliver it to the University by mid May 2012.
