Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Communication | Add new course

The undergraduate program leading to a BA in Broadcast Communication recognized by the Commision on Higher Education (CHED) as a Center of Excellence in Broadcasting seeks to provide students with the requisite training to become future broadcast practitioners who are competent, critical, and responsible.

At the same time, graduates are enabled to adapt to the changing broadcast landscape in terms of new technologies, new modes of production, distribution, and exhibition of broadcast products.

The CHED uses the Broadcast Communication curriculum as the standard for other broadcast academic programs in the country.

The Broadcast Communication Department has also been active in spearheading alternative terrestrial broadcasting models as well as broadcasting over the Internet through the radio station DZUP 1602 AM and through UPTV Online.
