Creative industries such as film, television, and new media are one of the important soft-powers behind a country’s cultural and economic development.  They play crucial roles in establishing the image of a country, region, or city and help nourish their people’s sense of humanity and belonging.  

With the rapid growth in demand for professionals in film and television productions and studies in the global era, the CTV Programme meets the needs of the media and creative industries in the Greater China region.

The Cinema and Television programme at Beijing Normal University - Hong Kong Baptist University United International College provides theoretical and practical courses and organised events and exercises to give students the opportunity to understand and engage in the film, television and new media industries. 

The knowledge and skills learned from the programme are concerned with creativity, writing and production skills, management, research and criticism.  These areas are built upon the College’s ideal of ‘Whole Person Education’, its underpinning educational philosophy, and serve to create experiential learning modules that develop and enhance diverse perspectives among the students.

Career Prospects

The majority of past graduates of the CTV programme have found employment in TV stations, film companies, web companies, animation companies, production houses, advertising companies, drama crews, and other employment areas directly related to the creative industries. There are also about one third of graduates going abroad – to Europe, America, Hong Kong and Taiwan for further studies in both practical and theoretical areas.
