Faculty of Communication

Communication Faculty at Kyrgyz-Turkish Manas University was founded in the 1999-2000 academic year. Since 2004, the Faculty moved to the Chyngyz Aitmatov Campus. There are three main departments within the Faculty of Communication: Journalism, PR and Advertising, and Radio, TV and Cinema. 

Students from Kyrgyzstan, Turkey, other Turkic countries and neighboring states study in the rich academic environment at KTMU. Studying in a multicultural environment helps students gain responsibility and confidence to make their mark on their communities and the world. We also aim to produce professionals who respect national and global values, know theory and practice in their field, can correctly interpret regional, national and global events, think creatively and ready for social and professional life at the national and international level. 

In this context, the Faculty of Communication gives education to the students from Kyrgyzstan, Turkey, Russia, Kazakhstan, China, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and Ukraine at Bachelor, Master and Doctorate degree programs. To prepare competitive specialists for the public and private sector, our Faculty is equipped with a modern TV studio, mobile filming equipment, and laboratories for photography, graphics, and animation. Students can use these resources to participate in national and international film festivals, competitions between universities, academic events and projects, internships in Kyrgyzstan and Turkey and in other countries. Students also receive monthly scholarships and can stay in university dormitories. 

Currently, the Faculty has a strong academic program, rich technological infrastructure and a wide variety of projects the involve students and enrich their education.

Greetings from the Dean

Dear Students!

Through our professional faculty members, rich interdisciplinary academic program and modern technological infrastructure, we aim to ensure you receive a high-quality and relevant education. To balance theory with practice and help students gain useful professional skills, we have a fully-functioning television studio, plus studios for short films and documentary films, animations, photographs and advertisements, editing, computer laboratories, cinema, and a student newspaper. 

Our faculty offers an objective and impartial education program that follows international human rights laws and that respects all people, regardless of religion, language, race or gender, and that is in agreement with professional ethics. Because of technological innovations in the area of mass communication, media has become a way of influencing society. Media can be used for exploitation or assimilation, for destroying national identity, national unity, and peace can be used to incite disorder. This is why media is such an important field. We want to prepare young professionals who know the world they live in, who think critically, are self-reliant, independent and brave.
