School of Journalism and Communication, CUHK - Global Communication Programme

Global Communication Programme

The Global Communication programme is the first of its kind to combine a rigorous training in journalism and communication studies and a guaranteed academic exchange. Students will gain professional insights from local veteran practitioners, cutting-edge knowledge by world-leading communication scholars, and global mindset by studying in one of our partner universities across Asia, Europe, and North America.

The programme stresses both theory and practice. The theoretical component of the programme examines the complex nature, processes, and the effect of globalisation on media, as well as the challenges in communicating in intercultural settings. The practical component engages students with real-world production of the School’s English news practicum magazine, Varsity, and elective courses in integrated marketing communication and creative media. There is also an overseas field study where students, under the supervision of their teachers, conduct original research and media production.
