Department of Communication and Media Science
Communication and media shape our everyday lives and realities on both the personal and societal level. Understanding the contents and potential consequences of this impact has never been more important and relevant. The Department of Communication and Media Science, as part of the Institute of Marketing and Communication Sciences, is dedicated to engaged scholarship in the field of Communication and Media Science that promotes students with the abilities and strategies that are necessary to navigate themselves in a constantly evolving communicational landscape. In line with this objective, our department holds a unique position in Hungary by offering Communication and Media Studies at all three levels of tertiary education – Bachelor, Master’s and PhD. Our programmes and courses are intertwined with our research activities, which center on three main areas: visuality and visual communication; digital media and social communication; and communication and cognition. Our mission is to share and foster this research output both within and outside the academia and to become a leading research hub in the Central and Eastern European region.
