What is it about

The undergraduate programme, leading to the degrees of B.A. or B.Soc.Sci. (Hons.), is very flexible and students are encouraged to take any of the modules offered in CNM as well as modules from other departments in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the School of Computing and the School of Business. CNM also offers graduate programmes leading to M.A. and Ph.D. degrees — mainly by research.

The core of the CNM Programme is new media studies, which focus on the societal impact of new technologies on our social, cultural, political and economic landscape. Students can choose from a wide range of modules covering subjects like computer mediated communication, human computer interaction, culture industries, media policy and regulation and game, visual and interactive media design. The communication management area provides an overview of the theory, principles and application of communication research, planning, and management in organizations. Students interested in careers in communication management in the age of interactive and new media have the unique opportunity to combine learning about interactive media with designing content for new media and doing research for communication management.

With this multi-faceted understanding of new media and communications, CNM graduates will be able to work in a wide spectrum of private corporations and public agencies, in policy formulation, public relations, corporate communication, research and information management positions.
