Bachelor of Communication (Honours)

Porgramme Director: Prof CHAN, Kara K W

The Bachelor of Communication (Honours) programme offers a variety of ways to explore the exciting field of communication, and equips graduates with the skills required to embark on stimulating and meaningful careers, postgraduate studies, or both. All Majors are designed in the spirit of the University’s tradition of “whole-person education”, and more than half the units in every Major are devoted to General Education (GE) courses or to courses of the student’s free choice anywhere in the University. Students spend the first year of the four-year programme mainly covering required GE courses, and take three School core courses that will help them choose their Major. Major-Minor combinations are also available.

The structure of the curriculum is as follows:

I) School Core Courses 12 units
II) Major Courses 46 - 52 units
III) Honours Project 3 - 6 units
IV) University Core Courses 13 units
V) General Education Courses 18 units
VI) Free Electives# 30 - 36 units
    128 units

# Students may take additional GE courses (of Level 1 or 2) in any categories to fulfil the “Free Electives” requirement but only a maximum of 6 units will be counted towards the fulfilment of the “Free Electives” requirement.
