  • Integrated media specialization 

New media technologies and digitalization are changing media and journalism forever. Media and media education faces new challenges in the age of digitalization; the digital revolution and the unstoppable expansion of different platforms of mobile communication tools reshape the face of media continuously. Media convergence is the revolutionary and evolutionary form of the new media environment, it causes big changes in the global and national media landscape, media ownership, media systems, structure, information gathering method, storytelling or presentation method, and also the journalism genres. The changes are based on the digital technological revolution, but they are affecting all the social, economic, and legal structural factors. Parallel with the changes in the media itself, media education faces new challenges in the age of digitalization as well. The Integrated Media specialization is our answer to these challenges. We don’t teach print, radio, television, online, and social media on different specializations – we teach these together, in an integrated way. We also continuously change our education methods to provide relevant skills and knowledge: instead of frontal presentations, we focus on practice and project-based learning.
