    The emergence of new information and communication technologies, and especially the general establishment of internet as a customary resource for global and interpersonal communication, have substantially reshaped the nature of the communications field, likewise redefining and often reinventing “traditional” media such as the press, radio, cinema or television, to adapt to what has come to be called the age of media convergence.

    It is precisely the need to confront these abundant and at times radical changes which serves as the basis for the design of this Master’s in Applied Research to Mass Media. It is a Master’s program created with a vocation to respond  to new theoretical and methodological needs in this field, but which also strives to promote forms of research which respond to the constant demands of the business world, in both the field of journalism and information and audiovisual communication.
