The JMSC is offering a unique three-week summer programme in Shanghai this summer called Career Discovery in Communications.

The course aims to enhance the creative power and communication ability of young people by exposing them to the fast changing world of information technology. Through hands-on exercises and classroom instruction in the use of audio and video media tools, the course will help prepare students for their college application and future careers.

The course will be taught by professors from Hong Kong University and media professionals who have worked for leading international media organisations. All teachers have extensive experience of working with young people at both university and high school level.

‘Career Discovery’ has three major components
• Lectures on creativity, media technology and communications
• Workshops and lab work in English writing, photo story-telling, video production and multimedia design and publishing
• Field trips to explore the rich history and cultural environment of Shanghai

Course Outcomes
Participants who successfully complete the programme will:
• Produce an individual portfolio of multimedia work created under the supervision of our teaching staff;
• Acquire multimedia skills that will be useful for course and project work in any disciplinary area of study at university level;
• Enhance their understanding of communication processes and skills for social and career development;
• Receive a certificate of attendance issued by the JMSC, The University of Hong Kong.

Who Should Enroll
Senior high school students on the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong and abroad. College students who may want to have a rich and challenging experience in communications are welcome.
