The Faculty of Mass Media Communication is the fundamental and the most important faculty of the university. It also has a specific position in the Slovak education market – in particular – for its uniqueness to be the largest and the most complex media school in the country. It is considered to be the country’s most desired school among students of media studies. The demand for graduates of our faculty ranks the institution among ten most prestigious faculties in Slovakia. The faculty is also a research-development institution participating in scientific research in Slovakia and abroad. It cooperates with educational, research, artistic and art institutes. The faculty is involved in solving many international scientific and research tasks. It also runs the international center of media education. FMK UCM established the International Center of Media Literacy in 2010. This center has significantly contributed to the fact that Slovakia climbed from 23th up to 8th place among EU countries in media literacy level. FMK UCM has gained prestige in the international field, too; based on the proposal of FMK, the degree „doctor honoris causa“ were granted to famous world science authorities such as Philip Kotler (USA), prof.
