Journalism is defined as that science that is concerned with assembling, analyzing, investigating and presenting news about current facts and trends, as well as events and people. Those working in this field are called journalists. With the beginning of the twentieth century, most of them had degrees in this specialty, and since 1990 until now, the Internet has added a new form of journalism. e


Radio and Television Department

Radio is the distribution of video and audio transmissions in the form of programs to large groups of recipients, whether they are listeners or viewers, and most of these groups are from the general public or a small segment of them. Therefore, the Internet may send articles or music around the world as a whole, while the traditional radio in a particular place may seem Specific spread by comparison. The audio-visual broadcasting represents a large part of the media, which is concerned with the delivery of various information and programs to a broad base of society


Department of Public Relations and Advertising

Public relations is the art and science of managing various communications between institutions and their clients to build communication between individuals and some of them or societies and some of them and to maintain their good image and message in front of them. Various examples include:

  4. Politicians use public relations and advertising to obtain electoral votes and in-kind donations to help them with their electoral programs
