Today, the place and importance of communication in many fields is obvious. As a matter of fact, we are in a communication ecology of diversity and quality, from traditional mass media to new communication technologies or from mass communication forms to technology-mediated interpersonal and public communication. In this process, it is necessary to meet the need for human resources equipped to provide effective and efficient products and services by carrying out professional communication activities in various institutions and organizations, especially in the media and communication sector.
