The School of Journalism at Fudan University, Shanghai, celebrates the 10th anniversary in 2017 of its Double Degree Master’s program which first started with London School of Economics (LSE) in 2007.
The program is made up of individual streams linked to two overseas partner universities, the French university Sciences Po being added in 2012. Students from the LSE stream graduate with a Double Master’s degree in Global Media and Communications. Those studying in the Sciences Po stream graduate with a Double Master’s degree in Communications and Media.
The programs aim to enhance the skills of media and communications students—through research, practical training and applied learning—in Chinese media, marketing, journalism and culture to enhance their knowledge and understanding of China. They are designed to equip students with a richer global perspective and media savvy so they can contribute a unique transnational perspective to their future professions.
More than 200 international and Chinese students have graduated from the program since its inception, all contributing a research thesis resulting from their own investigations into various aspects of Chinese culture and life and the nation’s development. In order for a more comprehensive understanding of their research strengths, we have selected nine English theses and one Chinese thesis from previous cohorts.
The program’s focus on journalism and communication has broadened candidate students’ exposure to a wide range of associated research topics, examples of which are included in this publication.
The School of Journalism salutes with pride the achievements of all the Double Master Degree students who have passed through its halls of learning in the first decade of the program. They have been the basis of its establishment and are a valued and respected band of alumni evoking the School’s traditions and ethos in their chosen professions in China and around the world.
