Students in our Online Journalism program become more than just reporters, through training as they learn step by step how to gather news, report current events in an ethical manner on print, digital, and electronic platforms. Students study reporting, designing, and online journalism, with a variety of other courses like photojournalism, specialized journalism that includes business journalism, sports journalism, foreign affairs reporting, web-design and also creative writing, so each student can focus on the area they are passionate about, and by the end of the four years, they easily turn into multi-skilled journalists who meet the standard of not only national but also international journalism organizations.


The media is the mirror of contemporary life and a reflection of the progress of society. We, in the media program, prepare students for future work provided with past experiences, present efficiency and future expectations. Through a teaching staff with diverse expertise and skills, in addition to modern training equipment, we prepare our students for professional work. As we believe that student personality is the key to success, we are interested in building their personalities through a variety of activities throughout the year, so the program combines scientific and practical aspects, seeking to serve the individual and society more effectively
