If you have a passion for writing, communication and public affairs, our Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism is the one for you. We believe it is necessary to re-discover this profession and have therefore adapted our curriculum to the reality of today, especially when it comes to the new tools and technologies that are being used and developed in this field.

We have over 400 agreements through the ESCO Foundation to give our students the opportunity to do job placements and get some hands-on experience in the real professional world from the very first year of studies.
Our commitment to providing our students with real, professional experience through these placements has resulted in many of our students being hired at the same companies where they did their placements.
Our journalism students have the opportunity to get some hands-on experience in real communication and media companies like Unidad Editorial, Europa Press, Atresmedia, Granada Digital, Grupo Vocento and Grupo Prisa.
