About Chinese Journalism
Chinese Journalism students begin their major studies in year two. The programme prepares students for professional jobs in the Chinese media with a backbone of four writing courses as well as broadcast and online production classes. Four laboratory courses in which students produce their own Chinese –language news publication as reporters and editors provide students the opportunity to put newsgathering, reporting and editing skills into practice.
Students will also undertake four conceptual courses, including Media Law and Ethics and Communication Theory, which stress the theoretical aspects of journalism and its practice. In the last semester, students complete an Honours Project as either a professional project or a research thesis. CJ students who wish to specialize in traditional broadcast journalism will take one advanced broadcasting course in place of the fourth writing course, and one course in News Anchoring in place of the Journalism Elective.
