The aim of the program is the provision of high quality academic education at a BA level and the promotion of Research in the fields of Journalism, Mass Media, Cultural and Social History, and the Social Sciences more broadly.

In the framework of this general aim, the program is structured so that it enhances, in a developmental process, the introduction, acquaintance, and eventually specialization of the students in the field of Journalism and in the analysis of the social-cultural function and dynamics of the Media. In this context (which is based on a liberal arts/humanistic studies framework) it is expected that the students will develop skills for, interpretation, organization, and transmission of information – in both Journalistic practice and in social science research. There is a special emphasis in this context on the use of scientific methodology and in the analysis of social reality during the exercise of the journalistic profession.

Through the encouragement of critical thought, the program of study aims to contribute towards the creation of new [aesthetic, cultural, political and social] forms of perceiving reality and comprehending the alternative possibilities which are possible in given historical circumstances and dynamics.

The language of instruction is Greek.

1. Produce knowledge through teaching and research on journalism and other forms of mass communication as well as other fields in the Humanities and the Social Sciences.
2. Employ critical thought in the context of historical, humanistic, and aesthetic forms of understanding the world.
3. Provide the skills which will enable the practical acquaintance of the students with professional and scientific issues and the handling of individual and group work contexts.
4. Demonstrate understanding of the theoretical knowledge and professional-technical skills of the field of Journalism.
5. Demonstrate understanding of the broader structures of public discourse on economic, political and cultural issues.
6. Demonstrate competency in conducting scientific research.
7. Develop competency to organize information and to employ forms and techniques of processing information so that the students can participate actively in the new interactive forms of mass communication.
8. Build skills which enhance the development of the students’ autonomy as responsible individuals with forms of social, cultural and political consciousness [as in the form of active citizenship].
