Short Description

<<Programme Video>>

Housed in the landmark Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre, the Department of Media and Communication offers innovative academic programmes that focus on 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 integrate 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. Our facilities include digital TV shooting/editing studios, 3D virtual TV/audio recording studios, advertising shooting/design studios, and new media and eye-tracking laboratories.

During their undergraduate studies, our students have many opportunities to travel abroad on study trips, participate in student exchanges and engage in overseas internships. Our graduates are rapidly employed after graduation and enter a wide range of professions and careers, such as media industries, telecommunications, advertising/public relations, and business and education.

The Department currently offers the following two majors:

  • BA Digital Television and Broadcasting
  • BA Media and Communication
