Featured Programmes 

Bachelor of Arts - Communication and Media Studies major​
文學士 - 傳播與媒體

(September 2020 Intake, 2 years duration)

Communication and Media Studies is one of the most exciting and rapidly evolving areas of study in today’s media-driven world. This programme provides students with practical communication and digital media skills, along with essential theoretical knowledge, to help them engage with and develop a critical understanding of complex media environments. What we know of the world and how we act in it is critically related to our use of communication technologies, from language to screen, and from text to social networks. This programme also includes training in the use of the latest digital multimedia technology.
