Why study a postgraduate degree in Communication and Religion?

Posted on

Why does a bishop need Facebook? How do Jews communicate? What did the da Vinci Code crisis mean for the Catholic Church? For the second year, Blanquerna is offering a specialisation course to analyse these questions related to how religious institutions manage communication in a 2.0 environment. The Faculty of Communication has opened registration for the 2nd edition of this unique postgraduate course in Spain, which combines the triad of communication, religion and new technologies. The course will be taught by more than thirty professors and specialists in the field, including Luigi Accattoli, Italian Vatican journalist for Il Corriere della Sera; Isidro Catela, Director of the Information Office of the Spanish Bishops’ Conference; Jesús Colina, President of Aleteia, founder of Cenit and co-founder of H2onews; and Paloma Gómez Borrero, journalist, among others. The aim of this course (October-June) is to train competent professionals in the communication and public image of ecclesiastical and religious entities, as well as to explore the new communication possibilities offered by the digital environment to transmit the religious and institutional message. The flexible timetable (one Friday afternoon and Saturday morning a month and one week in June 2014) makes it possible to combine it with other professions. The course ends with a visit to the Vatican media offices in Rome.
