The Journalism Major offers four programmes: Chinese Journalism Concentration (including Broadcast Journalism Stream), Financial Journalism Concentration, International Journalism Concentration, and Data and Media Communication Concentration (in collaboration with the Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Science). All provide a solid grounding in practical journalism skills, covering both the traditional print and broadcast media, and the recently developed digital area and data journalism. They are also expected to think critically, creatively and independently about their work, and to display an awareness of the ethical dimensions of Journalism.


All Journalism students are required to take a professional internship, normally lasting at least two months in the fourth year. The internship usually runs from early June to the end of August but some employers may require slightly different periods. Employers will be invited to report on students’ performance, and students will also be asked to report on the internship.

Exchange / Study Tour

The Department of Journalism encourages its students to take an exchange semester at an overseas university, and also welcomes their counterparts from overseas to our classes. Exchange programmes are arranged at three levels: University-wide, School and departmental level. School and Department exchanges usually allow J-students to study at the partner university similar subjects to those they would take here so that the credit units can be transferred, and they will graduate at the normal time.


Career Prospects

Many graduates of Journalism Major become reporters, editors, correspondents and producers in print, electronic and online media. Others move into related fields such as public relations, marketing, business and commerce, government service and education. Some pursue further studies in Hong Kong or overseas. We have a good number of winners of prestigious media awards and scholarships for postgraduate studies abroad.
