With an Engineering background, getting into Masters in Communication (MComn) program under ULAB’s Media Studies and Journalism department was one of the biggest transition in my life. Since ULAB is one of the finest liberal arts university in Bangladesh and I was highly interested in having a more in-depth look into communication and its relevant theories, I thought enrolling in this graduate program would be the best possible way to follow my passion to work in the field of media and communication. This program provided me not only with theoretical background of communication but also inspired, motivated and guided me to a whole new world of social science research. I cannot think of a better and more effective way of learning as sharing, explaining and analyzing how communication, society and research interact with one another which I was exposed to in the classrooms at ULAB. While studying here, I was exposed to a broad range of communication research, wherein I was allowed to set bold research trajectories for which I mentally stretched myself to find out a topic which I am curious about. I believe that each highly motivated student will benefit from a wide range of intellectually challenging courses in the MComn program at ULAB’s MSJ Department, which will eventually help them in crafting their own bright future and contribute positively to the society.
After completing my BA, I searched for a Master’s degree in the media that would expand my vision. The best one was ULAB’s, which fit into the global environment of education where a student can judge his skills and knowledge according to international standards. The program developed in me a range of critical analysis skills and showed me how to apply that knowledge to my work.”
