Dreaming of a career in the Chinese-language media industry? If you want to capture the hearts of TV and radio audiences with your creativity or set readers abuzz with your snappy news reports and articles, then this course is for you.
With over 60 per cent of the curriculum taught in Chinese, the Diploma in Chinese Media & Communication (CMC) is designed to give you your big break into the Chinese-language print, broadcast and online media industries. Here, you will pick up professional knowledge and skills in journalism, radio production, video production, web design, advertising and public relations. Modules in Chinese literature, history and translation will help you build a strong foundation in the Chinese language and culture.
You will also attend off-campus classes at the Singapore Media Academy to learn TV studio production skills, and sharpen your media presentation skills.
In the final year, you will spend a semester working on an industry project or interning at top local media companies such as Singapore Press Holdings and MediaCorp. All third-year students will also embark on an overseas study programme in China, Hong Kong or Taiwan to broaden their understanding of the Chinese-language media industry.
Let’s face it – the most popular TV and radio stations in Singapore are in Chinese. Add to that China’s rising global prominence, and it’s not surprising to see why there is a growing demand for Chinese media content producers all around the world.
As a CMC graduate and bilingual media practitioner, you will be highly sought after as a Chinese-language journalist, content producer, or marketing communications executive.

• Hong Kong Baptist University (Hong Kong)
• National Chengchi University (Taiwan)
