Communication can be characterized as the foundation of human societies; that is, societies arise through communication and would cease to function without it. Indeed, communication is the paradigm of a cross-disciplinary field that is anchored in the liberal arts. The department of communication at Saint Louis University studies human interaction and symbolic practices, educating students to be culturally competent and ethically responsible leaders in journalism and media, advertising, public relations, and corporate, government and nonprofit settings.
SLU-Madrid offers a 4-year Communication degree with an international emphasis. The degree can be completed on the campus in Madrid or combined with study on the St. Louis Campus. The curriculum on the two campuses is completely integrated.
Our trio of full-time faculty members was trained in highly-ranked departments and presents a combined total of more than 40 years of university teaching experience almost 30 of which have been at SLU-Madrid. The numbers testify to our commitment to the campus and to an educational environment that is international to its core—and that is further characterized by rigor (high standards) and vigor (high energy). Moreover, our photography and journalism courses are delivered by acclaimed professionals who are also seasoned and successful teachers across more than a decade at SLU.
Our admission criteria are flexible in order to accommodate students coming from different educational systems.
Students who have completed their secondary education in the Spanish system must present their marks from the 3rd and 4th year of ESO as well as 1st and 2nd years of Bachillerato, and they must pass Selectividad. Additionally, we require an official academic English exam (TOEFL or IELTS).
