Diploma in Media and Communications




What will I learn?

This Diploma in Media and Communications course is designed to immerse students in the world of mass communications, journalism, and social media. Students will learn to apply concepts and practical knowledge in mass communications that are relevant to the industry.

As a benefit, students automatically become members of the Student Chapter of Institute of Public Relations of Singapore (IPRS). Student members get to experience industry visits and IPRS hosted events on an annual basis.

In partnership with Nas Academy (the training and development arm of social creator Nas Daily), a new social media pathway has been created. Students who select this pathway will learn content creation skills from Nas Academy trainers and receive an e-Certificate from Nas Academy upon graduation.

Upon completion of this course, students can further their degree studies with our university partners (subject to the university’s entry requirements).
