Master in Media Studies

General

Program Description

Media Studies


The graduate Media Studies program lasts for two years, i.e. four semesters (120 ECTS points). Upon completion of the graduate study, students acquire the academic degree of Master in Public Media.

Graduates will be able to apply the acquired theoretical and practical knowledge in media companies, institutions, government and non- government organizations whose field of interest are the media, civil society and the public arena, and in social science research institutions. There is a shortage of this kind of specialist in the Croatian media. The educational structure of Croatian journalists and media confirms that there is a shortage of specialists who would be able to recognize trends in the media
development from their theoretical experience and than to apply their high level expertise based on a modern media science. Therefore, the graduate study curriculum is organized in such a way as to meet the needs of the profession and the public, and at the same time to provide students with a program compatible with the international graduate media studies.

University of Dubrovnik The University of Dubrovnik is the “youngest” university in Croatia. It was established in 2003. on the foundations of a very long tradition which goes back to the 17th century, but also on decades of modern higher education. Through its programs, its organization and its technical equipment, the University of Dubrovnik can be stands among very modern educational institutions. History High education and scientific work have their roots in the distant past. This is particularly true of the maritime, the social and the natural sciences. For example, Beno Kotruljević, of Dubrovnik, wrote four books in 1458 “About Commerce and a Perfect merchant”, published in Venice in 1573, which was the first work of its kind. There is also Nikola Sorgojević, a citizen of the Dubrovnik Republic (Respublica Ragusii, 1358 – 1816), the first Croat who wrote a book about navigation (published in 1574). Jesuits founded “Collegium Ragusinum” in 1624, which was promulgated into a public institution of high learning where art and natural sciences were studied. That institution provided education for Ruđer Bošković, the most eminent Croatian scientist and the founder of the dynamic theory of atoms, who continued his doctorate studies in Rome. The Dubrovnik Republic Senate allowed young aristocrats to study navigation and commerce and apply their professional knowledge when sailing out of the Adriatic Sea. About Dubrovnik Dubrovnik, a magnificent historic city, founded in the 7th century, traces its roots to the ancient world. It was the only city-state on the entire Croatian coast, from the 14th to the 19th century. Seafaring and trade, together with the wise international policy and skillful diplomacy brought economic and cultural prosperity and centuries of prosperity to that free city-state.The Dubrovnik people were known as good seafarers, tradesmen, scientists, and writers.
