Beside the general introduction to journalism, the undergraduate programme offers students to take two out of five specialised major fields of study in the third year of their studies: Television, Radio, Print Media, Public Relations and New Media, which are meant as a theoretical upgrade of the basic journalism courses and not as practical lessons.
