School of Media & Communications
The MDIS School of Media and Communications is the pioneer in the mass communications programme field in Singapore. It is also the first institution in Singapore to offer mass communications programmes from an American university- Oklahoma City University (OCU).
The OCU mass communications degree programme is taught by OCU faculty in Singapore. The programmes are industry focused, relevant and of high quality. MDIS has its very own fully-equipped TV and Radio studios as well as Audio and Video edit suites. It is the first PEI (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 television and radio presenting.
To gain more experience, students can also join the Media and Communications Club, Students get to run their own e-magazine, campus radio and TV station where they get to polish their journalistic skills.
Students from the school are also very active in the area of internship attachments, and are well received by media and communications companies. In addition, our students also assist in the Institute's marketing activities. These practical aspects ensure that our graduates are well-prepared for the 'real world' environment.
With the government's intention to turn Singapore into a media hub with its 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 prove their mettle and make their mark in Singapore as well as on the global stage.
