GOMBAK, 7 February 2020 – A briefing session for communication students called Communication Academic Briefing (CAB) will be held on Wednesday (12 February) from 12.00 noon to 2.00 p.m at Library Auditorium.
Organised by the Department of Communication and Communication Student Association (COSA), CAB’s objective is to brief first year students on the availability of courses offered by the Department and to assist them in their study plan for the undergraduate programme at the university.
It is organised every semester to provide students with useful information on courses offered by the Department. This semester’s CAB is significant as the session is going to provide students with details on the new academic structure, the exposure to different specialisations, activities related to specialisations and future prospects for each specialisation.
Students will also have the opportunity to be exposed to various entities available for Communication students such as IIUMToday, IIUM.fm, Communication Students Association (COSA), Institute of Public Relations Malaysia Student Association (IPRMSA) – IIUM Chapter, and IIUMTV, where students could learn to interact and be exposed to certain knowledge and skills.
Refreshments, star points and excuse letters will be provided by the Department. CAB has been made compulsory for all first year students who intend to major in Communication to attend the event. ***
