Pillars of the School of Journalism
The School of Communications and Journalism bases its undergraduate and graduate study plans, community engagement, its data observatory and research on the following pillars:
Press and Power
Professional journalism and media are central elements in a democracy. We believe that practice, analysis and research of the role of the journalist in society is an indispensable framework for professionals and for the country. Undergraduate and graduate education doesn’t only focus on the exercise of the profession, but rather aims to strengthen the global reflection of the connection between journalism and power.
The day-to-day of companies and institutions assumes that communication is at the genesis of strategy. In undergraduate, master’s and graduate certificate courses and research, professors develop methodologies for analysis, messages and media to reach different stakeholders. A good communication not only benefits organizations, but also society as a whole, improving trust between stakeholders and making strides towards the development of the country.
Understanding power maps and the motivations behind decision-makers in democratic societies is part of the undergraduate, graduate and research lines at the School of Communications and Journalism. This aims to enrich the understanding of the environment through a reflection that includes an open ear towards political and social discussions in the country and new methodologies that emerge in an effort to understand societal trends.
