Audio Production Course
Teach students audio basics including editing, writing scripts, delivery, use of audio elements, like nat sound, and production of an audio documentary.

Teach students how to write across media platforms including audio, social media, video, public relations and online. Students produce an ePortfolio of their work in the course at the end of the semester.
Multimedia Journalism Capstone
This course is designed as a newsroom with the student journalists pitching multimedia projects to address civil society issues in Egypt. Each group project must include articles, videos, audio, interactive element and the use of social media. The multimedia content is displayed on a website that they create.
Mass Communication Course
In this survey course, students learn how media works. To make the course less lecture and more interactive, students are required to present on a media topic, write short papers on media topics, contribute to a media Wiki, produce short multimedia content and more.
