GLOBAL COMM

Short Description

The Global Communication programme is built on collaboration with the School of Media, Film and Music at University of Sussex in the UK. It aims at equipping students with professional knowledge, unique international learning exposure and global mindset by exchange studies in Europe for two semesters. Students who enrol in this programme will have opportunities to widen their horizons, by closely interacting with UK students. Courses in the programme will examine the complex nature, processes and the effect of globalisation on media, and the innovations associated with the development of new modes of communication in a transversal approach to media studies, cultural studies, global media management, cross-cultural communication, etc. There will be study trips and visits to media agency visits in major cities in Asia and Europe enabling students to apply theory to practice.

Graduates will be able to enter a wide range of careers around the world, including transnational corporations, multinational news organisations, global advertising and public relations organisations, international entertainment enterprises, non-government organisations, inter-governmental organisations, and more.
