Hong Kong Baptist University
Department of Journalism
We have been training journalists for nearly 50 years. Our program emphasizes both the theoretical and the practical to nurture ethical, critical and creative future academics and professionals in the journalism field.
This program grounds students in the theories of business, economics and finance as well as equipping them with professional journalism skills for work in the local or international journalism field. Internships and student-run media give students the opportunity to put skills into practice.
This program prepares students to enter the English-language journalism field with online, print or broadcast media. The program looks at news locally and abroad from an international perspective, and internships and student-run media give students the opportunity to put skills into practice.
Integration of Experience
We believe the best learning happens both in and out of the classroom. We regularly organise professional speakers and hands-on workshops, local and international media visits and international reporting trips. All of our students do internships in top media organisations and many go on overseas exchange.
