Program Degree and Majors

Program Philosophy

The goal of the program is to prepare quality students who will graduate with the new knowledge in mass communication technology. The program's students will be practiced in the use of new technologies, so that the graduated students will be able to respond to the job market not only in the official sector, but also in the private sector.

In modern times, mass communication projects have developed alongside the expansion of business and industry. Each project in the course of development, has needed authoritative sources of advice and know-how on mass communication technologies, but the available resources have not kept pace with demand.

Changing global business environment and changing international political economy are the key factors for the increasing recognition of the important role of mass communication subjects. The Thai constitution has provided many classification policies for the radio and television industries. As a result, the demand for professionals in each field of mass communication technologies will increase. Our reviewed program (reviewed 2005) can help not only to reduce the excess demand, but also to prepare a pool of graduates ready to facilitate the three most important fields of mass communication resources for people everywhere.

Ramkhamhaeng University Institute of International StudiesBefore the establishment of Ramkhamhaeng University in 1971, Thailand had long suffered what might be called "a crisis in the quest for higher education". At that time the number of high school graduates seeking seats to the universities outnumbered the admission capacity of all universities combined. The problem finally prompted the parliament to pass a law authorizing the establishment of Ramkhamhaeng University, named after King Ramkhamhaeng the Great (ca. 1239-1317), who invented the Thai alphabet, or ‘RU’ as it is commonly known ... the country’s first open-admission university.The university was granted permission to use a 300 rai (125 acre) plot of land in the eastern suburb of Bangkok as its main campus; this land once housed the International Trade Fair.
