Facing the Digital Challenges
The Faculty of Mass Communication and Fine Arts (MCFA) has a clear vision built on facts based on studies spanning academia around the world. The learning model is oriented towards facing real-world challenges.
Our faculty instructors form part of the media sector and its range of fields of specialization. Within such environment, students can pursue their future careers with confidence capitalizing on the content of the courses delivered to them within and outside traditional classrooms.
The real-world dynamic approach, hands-on learning, and collaboration among faculty members, students, and practitioners in the vast field of Media and Communications provide the constructive context for finding creative Media practitioners to the world of tomorrow.
NEXT is our motto.
MCFA offers its students unique programs. For example, the off-class Friday excellence sessions. Presenting a new perspective of curricular vision that is developed to implement dynamic outcomes for the society's challenges.
Together, the private sector, faculty, and students are working to create a multi-directional engaged media practitioner able to find new ways to mitigate some of the most intractable issues: Digital World in the Lebanese and Arab markets.
Another project that demonstrates the Faculty's "NEXT" approach: The In Vitro projects - a student-oriented intensive media production programs composed of Media Professionals, faculty and students working in different Academic Production Houses throughout the MCFA Multimedia Lab. The applications of these cumulative projects have the potential to improve the students' ability to match the market requirements and going beyond them.
The Media ethical and digital challenges facing us today require new and innovative solutions. A growing commitment - to reaching well-based ways to tackle the aforementioned challenges - defines the MCFA ability to lead the NEXT.
The MCFA along with other MU faculties demonstrate the unique ability to make a different footprint in Lebanon and the region.
