St. Joseph Freinademetz Communication Center, Inc.

An Emphasis on Research

MAT-SPC concentrates on Pastoral communication or the study of the communication dimensions Church ministries. A further development foresees an emphasis on Evangelizing communication or the communication dimension of Evangelization, which is strongly related to Missiology.

Beside the course on intercultural communication, the program also focuses on the communication dimension of interreligious dialogue as well as the relation between religion, communication and culture. The latter is a special concern of the Asian Research Center for Religion and Social Communication (ARC)  related to the program . Based at Saint John’s University, Bangkok, the ARC is also connected to MAT-SPC in emphasizing the research element. The center publishes  the bi-annual journal, Religion and Social Communication.

ARC is at Saint John’s University, Ladprao, Bangkok 10900, Thailand. Telefax: (+66) 2938 7087. Email: arcstjohns.bkk@gmail. com URL: www.stjohn.ac.th/arc
