Student Profile

Type of Degree

We live in a world of constant change, where audiovisual language has gone beyond the cinema and television screen to inundate networks and electronic devices (mobile phones, digitisers and video game consoles). These new digital tools together with the growing demand for contents require increasingly specialised professionals. Students who wish to take the Degree in Audiovisual Communication should possess a strong interest in the New Technologies, a passion for the Media (cinema, radio, television, the Internet), and a creative sensibility. They should be motivated to become a contents author and manager, always bearing in mind the public they are addressing: What to communicate? To whom? How to communicate? Through which channels? In addition, students should display a sound aptitude for interpersonal relationships and teamwork.

This is an officially recognised University Degree, valid throughout the European Higher Education Area.
