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
