The idea about information being the biggest and the most significant power invaded the modern world in the last decades, and this notion is not meaningless; in fact, there are many reasons to believe that the media rules the world, providing information or forging legends for the sake of domestic and international matters. A Master in Media is an excellent choice for those seeking to enter this challenging and ever-changing field.

Among the most influential media branches are mass media, broadcast and advertising media, news media, digital, and electronic media, each of which can be explored or specialized in with a Master in Media program.
