Program Specific Questions:
Q1. Is English important for admission to the Program?
A1. Absolutely. We strongly advise students to check their English skills. The program demands students to have strong oral, written and reading skills in the English language.
Q2. Will the classes be taught in English, Putonghua or Cantonese?
A2. All required courses and the majority of elective courses are taught in English. Students may also choose other elective courses taught in Cantonese or Putonghua, depending on availability.
Q.3 Is the Global Communication program suitable for students who are only interested in practical skills training?
A3. This is a definite NO. Although the program combines theory and practice, students need to be willing to commit themselves to theory. The program emphasizes training that fosters students’ critical thinking and enables them to join the discussion on sociocultural and political phenomena related to globalization and communication. Theory is essential for this process. Students have opportunities to develop their practical skills in addition to theory, of course. However, if students are interested predominantly in skills-oriented training, we suggest looking at one of our other programs. We trust that the rigorous training in the GC program will give students a competitive edge in the job market.
