Media and Communication Sciences Program at the Faculty of Media at Alaqsa University aims to equip graduates with fundamental abilities and in-depth knowledge in the field of media and contemporary communication sciences so they can analyze and foresee local, regional, and global media issues as well as develop the capacity for scientific research in this area of study. It helps to develop a media generation that is mindful and able to take in information based on solid scientific principles in order to progress technology and raise the standard for professional performance. It also aims to train scientific experts who are qualified and skilled in the practical application of audio, visual, written, and audio-visual media.

The necessity to train media professionals has become critical in light of the increasing changes and challenges that the media are experiencing today in the production and management of content and its accompanying technology; this will increase the level of competition on the labor market.
