Welcome to the Faculty of Communication Studies
The Faculty of Communication Sciences, Padjadjaran University (FIKOM UNPAD) was established on September 18, 1960. Initially, this faculty was called the Faculty of Journalism and Publicity, which was initiated by a number of mass media observers in Bandung. In 1965 it changed to the Publication Institute, but not for long, its name in that year also became the Faculty of Publicity, and since 1982 it became the Faculty of Communication Studies.
“The birth of the Faculty of Journalism and Publicity (FDP) in 1960 was the fruit of the community’s need for the availability of publicist experts, in line with developments that occurred after the Republic of Indonesia celebrated independence de jure. The Indonesian people expect the presence of highly educated publicist experts to participate in guarding the country’s development.”
