Why Communication & Media?
Living in the information age, I am always fascinated with the media and the world it creates. Thankful to mass media, I have access to useful knowledge, from the small one like advice for a better lifestyle to the big one like global affairs, economic crisis. However, as the media reaches every corner of our lives, I believe that learning to navigate it has become more important than ever. I remember one time I was taken in by fake news, which was about Seungri, a famous Korean star, who was suspected of rape and prostitution. I read many articles this affair; however, as I followed an unreliable source on the internet, I carelessly accused him of the crimes and wrote heavily critical comments about him even before official investigation.
Another reason that I want to study media and communication is to prepare for my career as a journalist. To me, being a journalist is an ideal way to bring information to the audiences, and I am driven by the idea that my writings can help them to form an accurate perspective about the world we are living in. I believe that media and communication is just the right programme for me. With an interdisciplinary approach, this programme will provide me knowledge and skills that I need to make sense of the media, enhance my critical thinking to evaluate the media content. Furthermore, I believe media and communication is a vocational programme that I will make most of to hone my writing and communication skills.
