Program Description

The Center of International Communication Studies (CICS) of BFSU was set up in 2006 in  response to China’s increasing demand for well-trained, English-proficient professionals in international journalism and communication. CICS offers well-rounded courses that integrate cutting-edge theories, practical skills, and English. Meanwhile, it also adopts an approach that encourages engagement both on and off the campus with student media and  through internships with leading news organizations. Great efforts are made to impart students with an excellent command of English, a broad range of professional skills and theoretical knowledge, and prepare them for future careers as journalists or public relations specialists in news organizations, multinational companies, international organizations, etc.
