Masters in Political Communication welcomes its eighth cohort
The Social Communication - Journalism Masters in Political Communication Program offered an enjoyable dinner at the Block I -Casa Externadista, to welcome 17 new students who will be part of the eighth cohort of this graduate program.
Attending the event was Liliana María Gómez Céspedes, PhD in Information and Communication Sciences from the University of Paris 2 Panthéon Assas and professor of the Master’s program. The event also brought together the Faculty’s postgraduate team, among them – Diego Mazorra, academic coordinator; Esperanza Jaramillo, administrative coordinator, and Faculty Dean, Luz Amalia Camacho.
“With the advent of social networks, I thought it would be the perfect space to have more democratic scenarios and that society, in general, would change its dynamics regarding how politics were understood. However, I realized that everything was, basically, the same. The only thing was that politicians adjusted to the environment and redirected their messages. Phenomena like this are what drive my studies in Political Communication,” stated Liliana Gómez in her welcoming words to the new graduate students.
With the opening of this cohort, the Externado Social Communication – Journalism Masters in Political Communication Program continues its mission of training professionals capable of understanding and analyzing the connections between media, citizens, and political exercise, and to understand the contribution of Political Communication in the construction of a democratic culture.
