Communication graduates admitted to world’s top postgraduate schools

傳理學院畢業生獲頂尖大學取錄入讀研究院

A number of fresh graduates of the School of Communication have been admitted to the graduate schools of leading universities around the world, including Harvard University, Columbia University, the University of Pennsylvania and Northwestern University in the United States.
 
Of these high-flying students, Charlotte Yang (International journalism, Year 4) has been admitted by Harvard University’s John Kennedy School of Government to study its Master of Public Policy programme. Though she devoted her utmost efforts to gain entry to Harvard University, she never expected that her dream would come true, and considers herself very fortunate to have this opportunity.  
 
As someone willing to brave any challenge, Charlotte has joined many activities including the Putonghua debating team, a Metropolitan Attachment Programme, as an exchange student in London, working at China Central Television and at the Hong Kong branch of the New York Times as an intern reporter. These experiences have stood her in good stead, equipping her with a solid foundation of knowledge and widening her vision. 
 
Lindsy Long (International journalism, Year 4) will study at the Columbia Journalism School of Columbia University. She has always been eager to explore the world and fully understands that a professional reporter needs to acquire many fields of knowledge such as politics, economics and languages. Therefore Lindsy not only took a minor in applied economics and learned Spanish from her first year, she also took internships at Reuters and China National Radio, and an exchange study in the Netherlands. 
 
She thanked HKBU for providing such a variety of learning opportunities and is deeply grateful to the knowledgeable and responsible teachers of the Department of Journalism who nurtured her whole-person development and prepare her to become a professional journalist. 
 

傳理學院多名應屆畢業生獲世界知名大學研究院取錄,包括美國哈佛大學、哥倫比亞大學、賓夕法尼亞大學、西北大學等。
 
國際新聞四年級楊雨婷獲哈佛大學肯尼迪政治學院取錄,修讀公共政策碩士課程。雖然她為入讀哈佛作全力準備,但一直不存任何希望,因此對成功獲取錄感到十分幸運。勇於嘗試的她,在浸大積極參與不同活動,例如普通話辯論隊、大都會實習計劃、到倫敦交流,又在中央電視台和紐約時報香港分社實習,奠下堅實的知識基礎及開拓廣闊的眼界。
 
國際新聞四年級龍津津即將入讀哥倫比亞大學新聞學院。她希望能夠探索世界,亦明白新聞工作者必須對政治、經濟、語言等有所掌握,因此在浸大期間,已經副修應用經濟學,又從一年級開始學習西班文,並到路透社、中央人民廣播電台實習,以及到荷蘭交流,作未來積極裝備。她感謝浸大提供不同的學習機會,並讚賞新聞系導師專業、負責的態度,致力培育她的全面發展和成為一位傑出的新聞從業員。
