Korea University’s graduate school of journalism and mass communications is recruiting a new batch of students for the fall semester of its advanced media program, university officials said.
The program, which will welcome its 44th intake in September, will help students learn about differences between traditional and new media and how to mediate between the two, according to the officials. Prominent scholars in media, business planning and strategy will give lectures on Internet media as well as working theories on Korean media industries’ capital markets.
The 22-year-old program has an alumni association of some 2,000 members, including journalists, politicians, government officers, CEOs, lawyers, judges, prosecutors and physicians.
“The program is pursuing a paradigm shift in society by enlarging its views of the media environment,” the university officials said.
Classes will be conducted every Tuesday evening from September to December. Those looking to obtain more information can contact the university officials at (02) 3290-1402 or go to mediacom.korea.ac.kr.
