The School of Arts offers English-language master programmes in the visual arts, audiovisual arts and music. Each year, dozens of foreign students choose the master programmes of our faculty to continue their studies. The presence of students from different international backgrounds is an enrichment for our educational tradition and provides an added value to the training of foreign master students and Flemish students moving on from the Dutch-language bachelor programmes alike.

The programmes are organized so as to facilitate encounters between Dutch-speaking and English-speaking students in informal contexts, in seminars and courses, and even in artistic projects, they start up together. There are no differences in curricula, competencies, learning outcomes or organization between the English-language programmes and their Dutch-language counterparts.

About

The MA in Communication Programme at the School of Communication, Hong Kong Baptist University was launched in 1996. Since its inception, the Programme had been partially supported by Hong Kong government educational subsidies up until September 2004 when it became fully self-financed. The change in the source of funding was accompanied by an opening of the Programme, for the first time, to Mainland and other overseas students and the addition of the full-time study mode. In September 2004, a total of 92 students were admitted to the Programme, approximately two thirds local Hong Kong students and one-third mainlanders. The students divide more or less equally into part-time study mode (Hong Kong students only) and full-time study mode (both from Hong Kong and outside).... [-]

Overview

We live in a communications-saturated world where 24-hour news coverage, access to the internet and the use of social media have become the norm for millions of people. Global events are instantly reported by the news media, analysed and interpreted by them and millions of ordinary citizens. These developments challenge the traditionally secretive practices of international diplomacy and the ability of governments to control information whilst also creating powerful new tools for propaganda; they enhance the importance of cultural or ‘soft’ power in international relations, and they have also transformed the nature of warfare.

This course is run by the Department of History, Politics and Philosophy in conjunction with the Department of Information and Communication.... [-]
