The Academy of Journalism and Communication (AJC) was established on 16 January 1962 by virtue of Resolution 36 NQ/TW of the Central Secretariat of Vietnam Communist Party. AJC is part of the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics.
Over the past 59 years, the Academy has transformed itself from a small school to be the leading institution for journalism and communication education in Vietnam. On 25 June 2015, Vietnam Prime Minister added the Academy to the network of key universities in the national education system.
AJC offers 39 undergraduate programmes, including three high-quality programmes and an international programme. It also offers 15 master’s programmes and six doctorate programmes. It has about 8,000 undergraduate students.
Educational quality has always been the utmost concern of AJC to ensure students’ positive learning experience. Many AJC graduates became high-ranking political leaders of the country and made important contributions to the country’s social development.
The Academy is committed to continuously improve the expertise, methodology and foreign language competency of its faculty members. The Academy aims to transform its faculty into leading international lecturers in their fields of study. Faculty members participate in national and international workshops and conferences. Many have delivered lectures in international universities such as University of Vienna, University of Hamburg, Stockholm University, and Middlesex University.
The Academy has received honorable titles and recognitions such as the Second-Class Independence Medal (1992), First Class Independence Medal (2001) and the Ho Chi Minh Medal (2007).
