Broadcast and Journalism Program

The digital revolution has rapidly increased the amount and forms of media possible in day-to-day life. To fulfil the needs of creative, critical and clever broadcasters and journalists while still holding fast to the ethics and values of Christianity, the “Broadcast & Journalism” program held by the Communication Sciences Department of PCU Surabaya offers opportunities for students to attain knowledge and skills while also developing non-academic potential. Supported by facilities such as the Laboratory of Television, Radio, and Media, students are expected to gain experiences as realistic and faithful to the media industry as possible.

Students will learn theoretical and practical concepts relevant to the fields of broadcasting and journalism, both in conventional and online media. Some of the courses offered include Reporting Technique, Basic Journalism Writing and Others, Documentary Film Production, Variety Show/Talkshow Production, Media Entrepreneurship, In-Depth Reporting, Media Presenter, and Media Law & Ethics. Highlighting real learning experiences and whole-person education, the teaching-learning process will be performed through lectures, discussions, case studies, fieldwork, service learning, internships, and company visits within local, national and international circles.
