The School of Journalism and Communication which has the longest history of communication education and research in Hong Kong, was formed in 1965. Since its establishment, the School has aimed at training qualified professional communicators and researchers for the Hong Kong community, and advancing knowledge in various communication phenomena in Hong Kong and other cultures. The School's flexible and broad-based curricula, with an emphasis on both theoretical and professional training, have enabled graduates to secure career opportunities in various working environments.
The School offers the four-year Journalism and Communication undergraduate programme. With effect from 2017-18, the School launches the Global Communication undergraduate programme (four-year) which is the first of its kind in Hong Kong.
