The MDIS School of Media and Communications (SMC) is the pioneer in the mass communications programme field in Singapore. As the first institution in Singapore to offer mass communications programmes from an American university, Oklahoma City University (USA), SMC now offers a programme from the University of Sunderland (UK) for those interested in the studies of media, culture and communication.
Oklahoma City University (USA) is ranked 23rd in the 2016 US News and World Report Ranking of Best Regional Universities (West). It is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association, an independent corporation and one of two commission members of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA); one of six regional institutional accreditors in the United States.
The University of Sunderland (UK) is ranked 51st in The Guardian University Guide 2016: League Table for Media and Film Studies.
The mass communications programmes offered by the university partners are industry-focused, relevant, and of high quality. MDIS has its very own fully-equipped Radio and TV studios, as well as Audio and Video editing suites. It is the first Private Education Institution to have such facilities for practical training. Students have the opportunity to practice what they learn within their academic curriculum. They are trained to master essential skills such as handling radio and television equipment, content producing, directing, scripting, and video editing. In mastering these techniques, they are exposed to a wide range of roles, including Radio and TV presenting.
Students are encouraged to join the Media and Communications Club, where they get to run the campus Radio and TV stations, and polish their broadcast journalism skills. These practical aspects ensure that our graduates are well-prepared for the real-world environment.
Track records have proven that our graduates are well-received by media and communications companies with the knowledge and skill sets vested in them.
With the government's Media 21 blueprint, the School has plans to build on its success by introducing more industry-relevant media programmes and ensure that our students are able to make their mark in Singapore, as well as on the global stage.
