Resulting from a partnership between the FACULTIES of ARTS, FINE ARTS, ECONOMY and ENGINEERING, the Master’s degree in Communication Sciences has the goals of providing their students:
- a scientific and professional education, combining solid knowledge in Human and Social Sciences with new information and communication technologies and the aesthetic and creative dimensions;
- further competences of analysis, production and creation of media and communication processes.
The Masters is structured in two areas – Media and Journalism and Strategic Communication – adopting a four-semester syllabus, worth 120 ECTS:
60 ECTS of a teaching/learning, where the student will choose one of the two available areas, in which he/she will be able to opt for certain subjects worth 6 ECTS in any scientific area at the U.Porto, to complement their training according to his/her own interests and competences;
On the third semester, the student will opt for a Professional Specialization (which requires the accomplishment of an internship and an internship report) or Research (which requires the accomplishment of a dissertation). Both options will extend to the 4th semester, fulfilling the remaining 60 ECTS.
The MECC graduates have the competences to exercice in the Communication Sciences, from journalism (broadcast, written, online) to communication production and analysis in political, cultural, scientific and patrimonial-related contexts.
