International Research Activity of the Department

The Department of Communication, Media and Culture has been in operation since the academic year 1990-1991.The Department’s mission is the theoretical and historico-empirical exploration of the communicative phenomenon, the creation of administrators/executives with employment potential for the public services, public relations, and press offices of the public and private sector, the instruction and training of journalists and managerial staff for the daily press and magazine medium and for the electronic media, as well as preparing professionals for all types of communication and information. Our programmes are structured on the disciplines of media, communication, and culture in three informal (not recoded on the degree) specialized Orientations: a) Orientation of Culture and Cultural Management, b) Orientation of Media, c) Orientation of Communication. The Department also runs five research oriented and teaching workshops that combine theoretical study with practical work: a) New Technologies Workshop, b) Rhetoric and Language Workshop, c) Journalistic Workshop, d) Cultural Workshop, e) Advertising and Public Relations Workshop. The last three workshops are taught or supervised by the Orientations and attendance in these is compulsory.

International Scope of the Undergraduate Programme
The Department of Communication, Media and Culture of Panteion University, has entered twenty bilateral agreements over the period 2007-20013 with departments of related objects of study in the framework of the extended Erasmus map (Extended Erasmus University Charter). These bilateral agreements have been entered with twenty institutions of countries comprising the extended Erasmus map and concern the participation in anglophone, francophone, hispanophone and hellenophone (Greek-speaking Cyprian) programmes from the broader discipline of communication. Over the last 5 academic years 120 students of the Department took advantage of the possibility offered them by the Erasmus programme and these students carried out part of their studies abroad. Also over the last 3 academic years 30 students from abroad moved to the Department utilizing the Erasmus programme. The Panteion University participated in the Leonardo da Vinci Programme for Work Experience abroad through the Association of T.E.I. (Technical Education Institutes) up until the academic year 2008-2009.

At present, Panteion University’s new graduates (from the completion of their courses for the degree award up until three years after acquiring their degree), may participate in the Leonardo da Vinci Programme for Work Experience abroad through establishments for which funding of their programmes has been approved. These establishments are announced on Panteion University’s Secretariat of International Relations and European Union website and on the National Scholarships Foundation website (www.iky.gr), while participation in the programme through these occurs within the stated terms. In addition the Department participates in the Erasmus-Placement for realizing work experience abroad at undergraduate level.

International Scope of the Masters Programme
From the academic year 2011-2012 the Masters Programme in “Cultural Management” and generally the Department of Communication, Media and Culture is a member of the European network of centres of learning in cultural management and policy ENCATC (European Network of Cultural Administration Training Centres), with the aim of optimizing information, international communication and the mobility of its academic staff, undergraduates and graduates. This network which has over 100 members in 29 countries secures the exchange of knowledge, experience and methodology amongst its members and co-operates with European institutions and with UNESCO.

Academic Staff Mobility

The Department encourages the mobility and acquiring of experience of the academic staff which serve it at universities and research institutes abroad, such as the University of Princeton, the University of Toronto, the University of Cyprus, et al.
The total agreements entered by the Department in the framework of the Erasmus Programme make provision for the possibility of academic staff mobility. Benefiting from the possibilities of the specific programme, the Department’s academic staff have made 20 visits to departments of foreign institutions of higher education during the past five years.
