Department of Radio and TV aim to educate individuals, who can be creative and are able to: grasp and implement the radical transformations; adapt to rapidly changing communication technologies and the world; who have an analytical and critical perspective; and are aware of social responsibilities and ethical principles. In addition to the courses that expand theoretical knowledge, the program also offers other courses that bring in professional information and skills required in the field of radio and television. During their education, students learn how to synthesize information theories and practices and develop analytical thinking skills to develop research strategies. In addition, students are required to complete a 20-day internship at two different times to have a network in the field, to reinforce practical lessons and to gain experience in professional life.
Students are supported and encouraged during their education to participate in both national and international competitions as well as to attend events and work in Radio-TV studios in a variety of technical divisions such as production and broadcasting. Also, media professionals attend the conferences and seminars organized by the department to share their experiences with our students. Students can benefit from the studios to work there as assistants or use the space for their extra-curricular studies. CIU FM – the university’s own radio station – broadcasts in TRNC on the 107.2 MHz frequency using a fully digital, computer-assisted foundation with the modern facilities of radio technology. The station produces many programs on a wide range of topics including education, culture, art, music and news. Students who have indicated a desire to do radio programs may attend diction training.
