Department of Media and Communication (options: BA Digital Television and Broadcasting, BA Media and Communication) 媒體與傳播系 [選項: 文學士(數碼電視與廣播)、文學士(媒體與傳播)]


Short Description

Housed in the landmark Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre, the Department of Media and Communication offers innovative academic programmes that emphasise media convergence. Unlike traditional curricula that segregate different modes of mass communication, we aim to train professional communicators capable of working in an environment of media convergence and information integration – an environment that spans journalism, broadcasting and TV, advertising, public relations and new media. To that end, we emphasise the integral infusion of new technologies, media skills, communication theories and creativity in our education.

The Department’s teaching and research activities are supported by a state-of-the-art integrated and inter-compatible digital multimedia platform. The facilities include digital TV shooting/editing studios, 3-D Virtual TV/audio recording/advertising shooting/design studios, new media and eye-tracking labs.

During their undergraduate studies, students have many opportunities to travel abroad on study trips, student exchanges and overseas internships. Graduates also have a successful record of rapid employment after graduation, entering a wide range of professions and career paths including media industries, telecommunications, advertising, business and education.

The Department currently offers the following two majors:

  • BA Digital Television and Broadcasting
  • BA Media and Communication

Admission Arrangements in 2019
