School of Communication Arts
The field of communication arts is concerned with the application of different types of media used to relay news, transfer knowledge, and provide entertainment. As effective management of these systems promotes development, increases knowledge and fosters mutual understanding, STOU recognized the necessity of providing programs in this field, and established the School of Communication Arts in 1984.
Because it is a distance learning institution, STOU has significant interest and experience in using media to communicate effectively. Students are not only able to learn important theory in communication arts, but they are also provided with opportunities for hands-on learning through the university’s own facilities, like the Educational Broadcasting Production Center.
Collaborations with professionals in the communication industry, such as award-winning directors and leading newspaper editors, also supplement students’ practical learning.
