Program description

Do you want a career in medica communications?

New and social media have developed so rapidly that a user’s awareness of the brief timespan from emergence to widespread adoption is either largely missing or simply unnecessary. Students, teachers, and scholars equally benefit when they reflect upon the fact that specific technologies of use (such as social media) in fact do have a point before which they did not exist. As a student of the field of media communication it is important to accept that we shall all remain multifaceted novices of digital media. Media exist in order to converge. Occurrences of media convergence suggest further changes, adaptions, and evolution of media technologies.

Prosumer behavior, or the tendency to consume new media content as well as produce similar content, reflects the nature of participatory digital culture. This is as true with competitive e-commerce sites as well as with the most mundane internet memes: the ease by which new content is generated suggests not only the obvious need for the technology but also the need to do more with it than is currently available. Similar to the generative capacity of language, the limitations to what individuals can achieve with new media technologies are restricted only by connectivity, willingness to learn from mistakes, and one’s imagination.

The Media Communications degree offered in Vienna enables students to explore the ways humans use media and technology to express themselves in simple as well as complex ways. Soon after beginning the program, students learn to interpret media messages, communicate effectively in a range of diverse contexts, and demonstrate creative problem solving, and exhibit professional knowledge and skills making them a valuable asset to marketing firms and organizations. A Media Communications degree offers a balanced education that emphasizes critical thinking, communication skills, and technical acumen.
