The department of Public Communication (DCP) brings together professors and researchers in both theoretical and applied subjects that are concerned with providing cross-cutting conceptual foundations to the professor and researcher endeavors of the School of Communication at the University of Navarra.


The DCP has as mission statement a deep reflection on the fundamentals of communication in its various manifestations in order to provide solid starting points for communication as a field of knowledge.

This reflection, in the case of CPD, is deployed in disciplines such as Theory, History, Law, or Communication Ethics. They develop the axioms, foundations, evolution and personal and social operating principles of the reality of communication, especially in the public space. Likewise, the DCP includes in its scope subjects that deal with communication as a basic category of the social and, with this specific perspective, it deals with Political Communication, Global Communication, Public Opinion and the methodologies used to study the effects of the media and its contents.

The DCP is fundamentally interested in the configuring role that communication has in the public space and in the forms of social life that appear in it.
