Javier Cumellas
Alumnus from the Double Degree in Journalism + B.A. in Mass Communication with concentration in Journalism
I chose UIC Barcelona because I could start using the television studio in year one and gain lots of television experience. I was lucky enough to be able to put my passion, presenting the news, into practice.

Presentation

In an era of information overload and multiple channels of communication, the immediacy of information consumption and the speed with which messages are transmitted leave us with less and less time for critical thinking and reflection.

Today's society needs professionals that adhere to the basic principle of journalism: to transmit information that is accurate and has been verified. For this reason, the journalist with humanistic training is vital for the future development of the media in the 21st-century.

UIC Barcelona's Double Degree in Humanities and Journalism will teach you how to meet these challenges by showing you how to study and describe our sociocultural reality in a systematic and principled manner.
