Abstract

This study is an attempt to clarify the impact of globalization of plans and curricula on the progress of the educational process of four GCC countries (UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman), the extent to which those plans could meet the needs of media students, the requirements of the media job market and how we can achieve the difficult equation of combining the thought of globalization and identity at the same time. To achieve the objectives of the study, three questionnaires were designed to gather information from the parties of the educational process triangle, the students, the faculty, and practitioners working in the media and public relations institutions.
