Educational Module
 
Suan Sunandha International School of Arts (SISA)
            The entertainment industry is growing faster and faster with stiff competition in the  industry.  The use of media is more widespread than in the past, as can be seen from the number of free television broadcasting stations, local radio stations, internet TV stations, and  online media that are growing exponentially.  It is necessary to generate more qualified personnel who can achieve a world-class product.  Formerly we tended to look to other countries for our production needs.  Nowadays we should manage our own productions.
              SSRU organized SISA, the first international college of film and acting at Rajabhat University.  In cooperation with private enterprises and other relevant agencies we have maintained a supported industrial growth.
               SISA focus on working with the industrial sector and on practical training.  We provide qualified instructors including artists, famous actors and executives from the domestic and international entertainment industries.  Student are encouraged to participate in creative activities throughout their four years of study.  The entertainment industry will soon be dramatically extended by the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) so it is necessary to generate more universally qualified personnel.  SISA places an increased importance on cooperation in teaching, working and cultural exchanges with 9 ASEAN countries.  The college focus on teaching and research to support English and two degree programs.
              Even though there are a large number of university courses in Film, Animation, Gaming and Performing Arts, which were set up directly under a faculty or included in others such as Mass Communication, Science, Engineering or Liberal Arts, few are in an English program.  With engagement in AEC, Thai students can globalize themselves.  English language tends to be emphasized in many fields in education, working and daily life.  SISA sees internationalization as a priority.  We aim for established standards of teaching and learning that can produce quality work that meets the needs of the labor market on a global scale.  SISA offers an educational module supporting further requirements, by studying 130 credits in three and a half to four years with and internships with companies.
