About-the-programmeAbout the programme

At the undergraduate level, we offer 38 courses on topics including news reporting and writing for all forms of traditional and new media, media law and ethics, and journalism history and traditions from regional and global perspectives. The curriculum includes a strong element of instruction in digital media, which are changing the nature of journalism. Special courses are also available, including Independent Study and Chinese News Writing.

Journalists should have a broad education, so we require Bachelor of Journalism students to acquire a second major. We also require students to participate in internship programmes. These requirements, along with exchange programmes with leading universities in the US, Europe, Asia and elsewhere, as well as other special programmes and seminars held throughout the year, help us equip our students with the abilities they need to become the next generation of leaders in the rapidly changing field of journalism.

Provision of feedback

We believe that detailed and timely feedback on student assignments is a critical component of an active-learning environment founded on continuous assessment. Therefore, the JMSC requires course instructors to return all student work submitted for assessment, including weekly tutorial assignments, media projects and exams, to the student with written comments as well as a grade. Weekly tutorial assignments should be assessed and returned to students within one week of the submission deadline. Other assessment tasks such as exams or media projects should be returned to students with detailed comments within one month of submission. Feedback on oral presentations or group projects may be delivered orally or in writing.
