"The school was very practical. Everyone had a chance to personally develop there and focus on things they were really interested in. I felt a spirit of voluntariness there; we were not forced into anything."

Students in an American bachelor’s degree program that choose to major in Business Administration, Communication & Media, International & Economic Relations, or Psychology have the option of sitting the Czech state exams upon completion of their program. Successful candidates are then awarded dual degrees consisting of both an American degree from the State University of New York, Empire State University and a European degree from UNYP.

The average adult now spends over 11 hours using communications media per day. That is more time than we work, sleep, or do anything else. The rest of the time, when not sleeping, we also spend communicating in other ways. Entire industries have formed in recent years to create, spread, regulate, and enrich this communication. The UNYP / Empire State University Communication major/concentration aims to meet the urgent need for communication professionals who understand the powerful role of communication in today’s world and can make it work for the betterment of society.
