,,It is all about love and passion for the study. We must try to get the most out of the lectures and the whole study. Every job requires a dose of zeal, and so should it be in education.”
Lecturer of the Faculty of Mass Media, PhDr. Martin Kasarda, Dr.
,,Media is for us what is water for fish. Absolutely natural environment. Working in this environment means living on the pulse of time and discovering new facts about society, but also some fun and relax.
Studying at the Faculty of Mass Media is the gateway to this dynamic media world. No matter if you are lured into the world of television, newspapers, internet or commercials, you’ll always need knowledge and skills we offer to students. Meet people who are already in the media and know what the real media world requires from professionals. You will learn to see the world around us from the media point of view. You will get information necessary for you to become a person who is not afraid to ask, search or learn things unknown to the others.
The media is the ocean where you can feel yourself as at home. They can make you ready for the situations happening every day. And it is only up to you whether you will swim And it will be up to you if you swim like a sardine in a big flock or if you act as a big shark which nobody ever overlooks.”
