The increasing presence and popularity of technologies such as broadband, mobile internet, social networks and IPTV fundamentally change the way we work, that we have fun and the way we consume media. The convergence of media is no longer future, but rather a framework in which modern media and mass communication operate. What occurs is intertwining, merging and combining of various media with the help of telecommunications functionally into one. Ultimately, the convergence of media results in a change of the organization of media, content and manner of its distribution, habits and the role of consumers, who from consumers of media content become "prosumers" and, also, in new approaches to media management, advertising, marketing and public relations. The main objective of this course is to familiarize the students with this new framework, which has changed the mass media and journalism in general, but also communicology, which previously studied media as separate media platforms, and now must study them as a combination of multiple platforms and accordingly adjust research methodology. The students will also be introduced to the rules and regulations imposed by the new media and consumers themselves, and the knowledge of how to create a rounded digital identity in the 21st century (of a journalist, as well as of a media product). Accordingly, the students will during the course acquire knowledge and skills that are necessary for their work in a converged media environment and so they could exploit the opportunities offered to them on individual platforms, and ultimately allow them to create their own media product during the course, adapt it to various technological devices and place it on the market.

Hrvatski studiji Sveučilišta u Zagrebu pokrenuti su i ustrojeni 16. studenoga 1992., isprva samo kao dvosemestralni Sveučilišni komparativni studij hrvatske filozofije i društva. Taj je program potom preoblikovan u program redovitog četverogodišnjeg studija.
