Founded in 1999, the Journalism and Media Studies Centre (JMSC) of The University of Hong Kong offers professional journalism education at Asia’s premier university, creating an environment for vibrant interaction among students from around the world.
Promoting civil society and an informed citizenry
Our vision is to promote civil society and an informed citizenry through a vibrant and professional news media, enhance professional standards, and bolster journalistic integrity. The JMSC pursues these goals through its teaching programmes, research, and professional services.
Comprehensive English curriculum
The curriculum, with instruction in English, is designed to produce graduates for all types of local, regional and international media organisations, whether the graduates ultimately practice in English, Chinese, or other languages.
From day one, students develop convergent skills enabling them to operate comfortably in all aspects of the industry, ranging from print, audio, video, and multimedia to digital and online journalism.
JMSC graduates are highly sought-after by employers and have been hired by international media organisations such as the BBC, Bloomberg, CNN and The New York Times, as well as local news organisations in Hong Kong and mainland China.
In addition to its main teaching programmes, the JMSC also offers professional short courses in media and journalism, and organises seminars and public forums to explore critical issues confronting the news media.
