HORLBECK, JÜRGEN. Why should we comprise Humanistic Studies in a School of Communications?. Signo pensam. [online]. 2010, vol.29, n.56, pp. 50-67. ISSN 0120-4823.
This work seeks to explain and promote the presence of humanistic studies in a school of communication, specifically, in the School of Communication and Languages at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana. It shows a reflection and a proposal for undergraduate study programs through the incorporation of humanities, a component that serves as a basis for the construction and development of both disciplinary and professional training. Human science studies are of paramount importance for the professional practice of communicators, journalists, language teachers, or information scientists. Additionally, they foster plural and multi-dimensional thinking in students, thus enabling them to embrace perspectives and realities other than their own.
