A master degree program in media and communications from a UK-based university will be available for Vietnamese students in Ho Chi Minh City from January next year.
The Media and Communications Management Program, sees U.K.-based University of Stirling and the Vietnam National University in Ho Chi Minh City team up to give employees and managers of media outlets and communications businesses in Vietnam increased analytical, planning, and communicative abilities through action-based training.
The program, due to start in January 20 next year, will be taught in English by Stirling academics, with teaching assistantship by Western-educated local media specialists, and involves both intensive face-to-face teaching and online instruction.
The students will attend lectures, seminars and discussions with leading media personalities in Vietnam as part of the courses.
It also includes a dissertation of 12,000 to 15,000 words at the end of the coursework period.
The full time course takes 12 months to complete and the part-time version takes 24 months.
Students completing the program will be awarded a University of Stirling’s masters degree.
Vietnam’s media and communication sector has been enjoying steady growth but local media executives still grapple with a lack of professionalism in many areas.
