The Journalism Department was founded in 1993 and is now part of the College of Political, Administrative and Communication Sciences at Babeș-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca. During the last few years, it developed some of the most competitive media and journalism study programs in Romania. The general and specialty skills and competencies acquired by studying at the Journalism Department allow our alumni to find work in a vast array of subfields of media and social communication: in the print press, in radio, television or in the online media, as reporters, news anchors, photo reporters, camera operators, audio-video editors, online editors or graphic editors/designers.
The Journalism Department offers a unique multicultural environment by offering four Journalism Bachelor-level study programs taught in four languages: Romanian, Hungarian, German and English. By choosing one of the three full-time M.A. programs offered by the Journalism Department, Media Production (in Romanian), Media Communication (in English) or Sociocultural Communication (in Hungarian), graduates can further their practical or academic skills.
Students are encouraged to get involved in numerous extra-curricular activities which offer opportunities for both professional and personal development: UBB TV, UBB Radio, the 50mm Photo Club, academic and professional student competitions and media exhibitions. They may also participate in ERASMUS mobility programs at our partner universities in Germany, Hungary, France, Belgium, Spain, Italy and Sweden.
