The academic staff of the Faculty of Communication and Arts is composed of both full-time and part-time faculty members.
Most full-time faculty are holders of doctorates with a keen dedication to teaching and research. These faculty members specialise in domains relating to the qualifications awarded by the Faculty, such as journalistic writing/editing, specialised journalism, history of the media, design, creativity, audience research, media planning, and research implementation, production and methodology.
Part-time faculty members are usually practising professionals currently tied to media groups and they teach more on-the-job subjects and workshops.
The hallmark of the Faculty of Communication and Arts is that it takes a preeminently practical approach to its programme, close to the occupational reality. It is therefore important that its faculty members have wide-ranging professional experience, and are able to transmit and leverage that knowledge in the lecture room.
The subjects taught in English are the responsibility of specialised faculty members, while staff in charge of the Professional Skills Seminars are experts in the realm of communications and executive skills.
The School devotes part of its effort to research tasks, as a fundamental complement to teaching. These tasks are structured around the existing Research Groups, which are part of the official register of the University, and which materialize in research projects with companies and public institutions of the sector.Consult here the lines of activity and research groups
