Message from Professor Huang Yu,
Dean of the School of Communication
Communication is a key to the future in a knowledge-based economy as well as in the creative industries.
As a pioneer of communication education in Hong Kong, the School of Communication has always tried to evolve with the times by embracing changes in the media industry.
We offer a full range of programmes at the diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
Our aim is to provide students at all study levels with opportunities to explore the field of communication and join the media and creative industries.
Our students are well-known for their originality and creativity. To help them realise their bright ideas, we launched the Creativity and Innovation Fund in 2016. So far, more than 30 projects, ranging from film productions, mobile apps, visual installations, virtual reality videos and campaigns for the promotion of local culture, have been awarded a total of $1.8 million.
In this age of globalisation, the future of our students is no longer confined in Hong Kong, but extends to the Mainland, Asia and the world. Accordingly, we have a global curriculum that enables students to understand the media’s role in effecting social changes across the world and grasp the professional skills of using different media to disseminate messages in diverse cultural settings.
To broaden their horizons and enhance their cross-cultural skills, all students of the School of Communication are encouraged to go on exchange and given subsidies to undertake overseas study tours. We endeavor to expand the vision of our students and inspire them to comprehend and even lead the changes that are sweeping through the world.
2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the School. We look forward to seeing all our students, faculty, staff, alumni, partners and friends joining hands to celebrate this major milestone.
