Nowadays, every member of the public sphere sooner or later turns into a sort of journalist. The development of various types of citizen journalism and the ever-growing possibilities of multimedia use shape the reporting trends of the future. Join us to get to know them and follow your passion!

Are you interested in social trends and the impact of mass media on social life? Would you like to master professional journalist skills and start a career in the media? Journalism and Media Communication studies at Vistula University are interdisciplinary, and allow you to become acquainted with key topics in the fields of sociology, marketing, law, management and negotiation as well.

Enrolling in Vistula's practitioner-generated program, you will not only broaden your horizons, but also learn to be more tolerant of differing views as well as to argue your own opinion. You will develop a great number of useful skills such as public speaking (also in front of a camera or to a microphone), proofreading and editing texts, preparing short or long utterances and publications on a given topic, and researching various information sources in depth.

Communication (from Latin commūnicāre, meaning "to share") is the act of conveying intended meanings from one entity or group to another through the use of mutually understood signs and semiotic rules.
Journalism refers to the production and distribution of reports on recent events. The word journalism applies to the occupation (professional or not), the methods of gathering information and organising literary styles. Journalistic mediums include print, television, radio, Internet and in the past: newsreels.
Living organisms including humans are social when they live collectively in interacting populations, whether they are aware of it, and whether the interaction is voluntary or involuntary.
The duty of journalists is to tell the truth. Journalism means you go back to the actual facts, you look at the documents, you discover what the record is, and you report it that way.

I mean to work for 60 Minutes, and be able to go any place in the world, do any story, have enough time on the air, et cetera, there is simply no job in journalism like it. At the beginning, it was a dream. Even now, at the age of 84, I work with people who are half my age or less, and it is the draw of the story. If there is a good story going, why not be there?

As for modern Journalism, its not my business to defend it. It justifies its own existence by the great Darwinian principle of the survival of the vulgarest.
