HKU Journalism pushes you directly into the deep end in order to shape its students into the best journalists they can be. In the span of a year, we were taught all the skills we need to thrive as a journalist, whether that be to write, report, film or interview. Despite joined the program with no prior background in journalism, I now work as a reporter full-time and feel confident in my abilities as a journalist.
The program also had some of the best instructors and mentors that I could’ve asked for. Although there were times during my study when I felt lost, I always felt supported by passionate professors who were always willing to lend an ear and provide guidance.
Although MJ was as time-consuming and demanding as advertised, looking back, I can truly say that it was worth it.
