Four decades of teaching, research and knowledge transfer. The Faculty was born in the academic year 1971-1972, three years after the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona was established with high expectations and enthusiasme in late Francoism.

In 1992, when rememorating the twenty years of life of the Faculty, the 13 promotion of graduates were remembered. From that year until now the outcome is one of the better reputated faculties in Europe thanks to a number of elements: the library, the laboratories, the degrees and the equipment that place the faculty in the first division with a teaching and administrative staff that work to reach excellence in a competitive and demanding world thanks to constant cooperation and improvement during four decades. Faculty studies grew from the initial Journalism (1971) and Publicity (1972) to Audiovisual Communication and Documentation.
