Message from the Dean

The world today, more than any other time in human history, is defined by communication technologies and media industries. Traditional media as well as new and emerging ones are playing a central role in our societies as communication tools, and as a driving force for the functioning and development of many fields and sectors, from economy, the government, and education, to entertainment, sports and leisure. The primary goal of the School of Communication and Media Studies at the Canadian University Dubai is to train students to become full citizens of this global communication world, and future leaders and professionals in the media industries and institutions.

Drawing on liberal education philosophy and on the Canadian model, the School of Communication and Media Studies offers three concentrations in both Arabic and English, namely Public Relations, Journalism, and Advertising. In addition to taking core concentration courses in one of these specializations, students are expected to take shared foundational courses as well a selective ones. The school program offers theoretical and hands-on practical training thanks to state-of-the-art media labs and a fully equipped multimedia studio, thus preparing students for real world jobs and professional experience.The school also has fully trained and highly qualified faculty,all with international experience in teaching, research, and community service.

Our Media & Communication degrees have been developed using blue prints from Brock University, one of the most innovative Canadian universities. There is a Memorandum of Understanding between CUD and Brock that promotes collaboration between the two institutions. Our students should be able to transfer credits from CUD to Brock and complete their degree in communication studies at Brock University after the completion of one or two years at CUD.

Because of the strong training we offer and the values of quality and integrity that we uphold at CUD, Our alumni work at leading media businesses, government institutions and NGOs as journalists, TV anchors, producers, PR executives, creative and art directors, and senior managers and leaders.

I believe that the School of Communication and Media Studies at the Canadian University Dubai is the right place for you to pursue and train for a successful and rewarding career. For further information about our program and school, please visit our website or contact us at info@cud.ac.ae.
