JOURNALISM & COMMUN

Short Description

The School of Journalism and Communication is dedicated to educating communication experts adept at information technology and capable of generating high-quality communication content, products and services. The School is also dedicated to research into various important aspects of communication.

This programme places equal emphasis on theoretical and professional ethics. It offers three professional tracks: Journalism, Advertising and Public Relations, and Creative and New Media. Based on their particular interests, students can specialise in one or two professional tracks, or select courses from different tracks.

The School is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, including high definition (HD) television and radio studios, a Blackbox Studio, two Creative Hubs for HD video editing and numerous networked computer laboratories.

The programme offers four practicum groups to students: U-Beat, Varsity, Pinpoint, and Creative Media Laboratory. Students can choose to participate in the writing, editing and production of one of the School’s two news practicum magazines: U-Beat, which is published in Chinese, or Varsity, published in English. Students can also acquire hands-on experience conducting social and commercial campaigns by working at Pinpoint. Those who join the Creative Media Laboratory gain knowledge and skills in audio and visual media production. In addition, the programme arranges summer internship placements for all students.
