Hong Kong Baptist University

Department of Journalism

Our journalism program was founded in 1968, and many of the city’s top media professionals are our journalism graduates. Our department is proud of our long history and works hard to provide one of the top professional and theoretical journalism programs in Asia.

We emphasise both theory & practice

Our courses cover everything from multiplatform professional skills and big data to media theory, law and ethics. We nurture and build creative, critical and analytical thinking skills, and graduates of the journalism programme fill many leadership roles in the media industry.

Journalism was the first course offered by the Department of Communication when it was founded in 1968, and remains one of the best-known courses in the university. The course became a Department of its own within the new School of Communication in 1991. Today, our journalism major is offered under the four-year Bachelor of Communication (Honours) programme with three concentrations: Chinese Journalism, Data and Media Communication & International Journalism.
