Girne American University Radio, Television and Cinema Department is a four year academic programme, providing education, research and practice opportunities in the field of communications. Goal of the Radio, Television and Cinema department is to produce liberal and creative thinking young communicators who are responsive to social problems and who can express their thoughts and act in line with the principles of professional ethics and social responsibility. As an interdisciplinary programme, Radio, Television and Cinema department aims to equip students with a strong foundation in sociology, history, philosophy, politics and arts. Consequently, the programme curriculum aims at harvesting both theoretical knowledge and practical skills, establishing the right balance between theory and practice. In this context the programme includes practical courses in addition to theoretical courses. In accordance with ’learning by producing’ principle, students attending the practical courses will be equipped with technical know-how and have the opportunity to both practice with and produce radio and television programs, short films and documentaries on GAU Radio and GAU TV which operate as part of the GAU university. Our graduates are well equipped to work in radio and television production and broadcasting fields and also in the field of cinema. Upon completion of their four year undergraduate studies, our students are able to actively find jobs in addition to opportunities for post graduate studies.
